If you have a Les Paul (or an LP-wannabe), you have to try these strings. Searching for that elusive great tone? These strings are an inexpensive way to get incredible tone. Bright, chiming tone with depth and greater sustain. I just restrung my 4 Agile Dauntless guitars (Duncan humbuckers, P-90s, Rockfield & D'Marzio pickups) and I can't get over the immense improvement in tone. Amazing improvement.

I've used three sets of these strings on my Les Paul and they do sound incredible. Tune up easily and stay in tune fairly well. I like to play agressive lead solo's. I'm not sure what it is about these strings but after an hour my fingers are shot. I've tried three sets just becuase I really like the tone. But not worth the pain. Back to Bright wires.

      these strings sound great on all of my guitars but they make your fingers sore after playing for a while. Gibson needs to improve on that and they would by very good strings.

        I always use these

        By fireballchaser

        from Louisville, KY

        Comments about Gibson Special Alloy Humbucker Light Guitar Strings:

        I use Gibson Humbucker strings on all of my guitars. I've got a Gibson Les Paul Standard, Epiphone Dot Studio, and Fender 72 Thinline Telecaster. All those guitars have humbuckers in them and I play a wide variety of music on them through a Fender Hotrod Deluxe and a pedal or two. Put as simply as possible, I just can't get my sound without them. I've been playing for 17 years and these are by far my favorites.Some reviews talk about these strings wearing their hands out but I've never experienced it myself.

        Sounds great But Hard on your fingers

        By Jamman-jXVdp

        from Sunny Florida

        Comments about Gibson Special Alloy Humbucker Light Guitar Strings:

        I had seen these and thought I'd try them . After an hour or so my fingers started to hurt. so i stopped. I tried on a few different occasions ending with the same result. With regular Gibson strings I have no problem playing 2-3hours. Playing the Blues, I bend the strings a lot. At home or jamming these are excellent sounding strings but are tough on the fingers. they have great sustain with a full tone. I am also going back to either brite-wires or vintage reissue's. imho the gibson strings are very good but with these beware.

        THIS IS GREAT

        By Ben Dixon

        from Coalville, Utah

        Comments about Gibson Special Alloy Humbucker Light Guitar Strings:

        I put these strings on a Epiphone Les Paul Special 2 and it sounds great. There is nothing like it. I play some rock and these strings make my new guitar sound great. I really like the gauges they are not to thick and yet not to thin. if you want your guitar sound great with Humbuckers you really should get these strings.

        Pretty good strings

        By Wildman-TzjuQ

        from Dayton, OH

        Comments about Gibson Special Alloy Humbucker Light Guitar Strings:

        I became interested in these when I saw they were optimized for humbuckers. The price was right so I thought I would try a couple of sets. These strings sound great on my Gretsch. They are now my string of choice. They stay in tune pretty good for being 10's. If you play a paul or any other humbucker guitar, you wont be disappointed. My only advice is to buy some extra 10's. Like any other light gauge, they will break on you if you get aggresive bending them.
