    Gibson Historic Reissue Strings

    I got a few sets of these strings last week. I have used Fender 150s for years on most of my guitars and have always really liked them. Whenever I have switched to something else (regardless of price) I have not been happy.

    I use other brands on some guitars. I use Pyramid strings on my Gretsch and Rickenbacker guitars and I use Ernie Ball .009s on my Mosrite. I never knew this, but Mosrite's tremolo was designed with the EB 9s in mind and works perfectly with them. On my PRSi I use D'Addario XLs.

    Anyway, I really like the Gibson strings. They have a really nice feel and sound great. They seem to be a little more mellow then the Fender ones. It's a slight difference, but it's there. I should note that so far I have only tried them on my LP and an SG.

    Anyone else like these?

    Nope

    I am pretty hard on strings -- for example even though I like D'addario -- they die on me after about a week or two at most.

    For the last few years I have been using Richard Cocco Strings - Finest Handmade Strings

    They sound and feel great.

    7.95
    R Cocco Handmade Electric Guitar Strings

    vs
    5.99 for the D'addario pure nickel or 4.49 for the EXL
    D'Addario Guitar Strings

    These last me several months. The extra $2/pack I pay is worth it because I end up saving a lot of money in end.


    I just do not have the patience to change my strings every couple of weeks my my guitars. Getting old and lazy
