    I used to use these on an Ibanez S370 electric that I sold a few years ago. Well a couple years ago I bought a brand new Ibanez RG3EXFM1 which I loved as soon as I first played it, and now it's like an old friend. These D'Addario's came stock on it and I've always been impressed by the tone and feel of them.

    I'm mostly a rhythm guitarist and I play a lot of punk rock and metal, but there are some lead parts that I've written and learned, and I don't play only fast stuff.

    When I broke the high E string and I didn't have a new set of strings for my RG I was basically lost. Yes I have other guitars but you know how it is with your favorite instrument. I very rarely break a string but I own 3 electric guitars and it looks like I really need to keep more extra sets around. I do have to admit that those strings on my RG were very old, they lasted way longer than any strings could be expected to. So I came here and bought a couple sets of these. I just got them today and restrung my RG, and I could not be happier! Just the tone and feel I love! These strings really seem perfect to me, always performing beyond my expectations.

    Also I recently bought a used Ibanez RGR, which was the electric I used while my favored RG was out of commission. Anyway the guy I bought the RGR from had put on a different brand of strings right before I bought it. I don't know if I'm allowed to say what they are but they are very popular strings and are among the top rated. Anyway these D'Addario's sound WAY better. I find that sliding between power chords sounds much better with these strings than with the others. The other strings really failed to impress me, so I will shortly be putting D'Addario's on the RGR.

    These D'Addario's are what I have always bought, and now it looks like they're what I always will buy!

    As always, thank you Musician's Friend! And thank you for the amazing strings D'Addario!

    I used these strings back in the 80's and they were great. Today they still seem like great strings but their a bit firm. More so than Fender strings. More like a Gibson string. I don't use these strings to much because alternate picking is really really difficult with these strings. I tried and tried but I can't alternate pick to well with these strings.

        A great general purpose string. These strings last a long time and retain "fresh" tone longer than some other strings I use. This and burnished strings are my favorites on my LP-style solid body. For tele, I prefer the EB slinky.

              I was trying different brands to see what i like the best and after using about five different brands these have to be the worst! Stick with Ernie Ball and save yourself time because these wore so quickly it wasnt even worth the money or the time to put them on. DO NOT BUY!

                For years I've used Ernie Ball strings, and had them start tarnishing and losing their spank in about two weeks time. Recently I had some work done on a guitar, and my luthier put on some D'Addarios, man what a difference! Tone is a clearer (though a little less crunchy/gutsy) but these strings last considerably longer under my fingers. Ernie won't be seeing any more of my cash any time soon.

                    Comments about D'Addario EXL110 Nickel Wound Light Electric Guitar Strings Single-Pack:

                    Avoids excessive sensitivity to pick attack and inadvertently bending strings out of tune when playing demanding chord forms, unlike extra light strings, but still easy enough to play and bend for soloing.

                    Good, uniform pickup response. Probably best for solid body guitars.

                    D'Addario strings can be relied upon to perform consistently from set to set. I feel confident that after trying this one set, I can order a larger quantity for a better price without unpleasant surprises.

                    These are my favorite strings. Great for standard and drop d. Can handle drop c, but there are better string gauges for that tuning. These strings sound and feel amazing and can take a beating. My only complaint is that they do not last very long, but its not horrible. Bottom line I recommend these strings.
