      Comments about D'Addario EXL110W Nickel Regular Light Wound 3rd Electric Guitar Strings:

      Just updating what has already been said. I will not be going back to an unwound G. The sound transition from 3-4-5 is so smooth now, it's like having a new guitar. A pure nickel set would be nice.

      Comments about D'Addario EXL110W Nickel Regular Light Wound 3rd Electric Guitar Strings:

      It seems it is getting harder to find sets of strings that have a wound G string. I feel the would 3rd string is a must for Jaguars & Mustangs, or any short scale guitar.

              Comments about D'Addario EXL110W Nickel Regular Light Wound 3rd Electric Guitar Strings:

              I was looking for a pure nickel set with a wound G but had to settle for this nickel plated set.

              Tone is a little harsher than pure nickel wrap but acceptable.

              Construction seems consistent but only time will tell.

              Nice even balance between strings even with non-adjustable pickup polepieces....I have these on a Telecaster.

              Price is good.

                I had forgotten how good chording could sound until I
                re-strung my vintage tele. The tone is so balanced and the strings seem to stay in tune better. You have to use a little more effort to make deep bends on the wound G but the overall sound is excellent. Smooth jazz riffs never sounded better. Try 'em you'll like 'em!!

                      In all fairness to these strings, I don't know how they perform. I bought these strings as a gift to an Oklahoma guitar-picking buddy in Bengal. When he tells me how well they performed, I will let you all know.

                        I use these mainly for my Stratocaster and Cyclone. I like these because the set has a wound third (G)string that gives me a better tone and feel. These strings seem to stay bright longer than other strings I've used and are easy to play too !

                        I have been a guitar player for 56 years.
                        I have played electric guitar most of that time.
                        I have tried most popular brands, but none compare to D'Addario EXL110W.
                        These are the very best string I ever used, and thats all I have used for the past 15 years

                        These are just what the doctor ordered... brighter cause of a smaller gauge...

                        wound 3rd cause it is going on an old acoustic with a pickup...

                        and less tension cause it is an old guitar... puts less stress on the bridge...

                        smooth = less fret wear etc...

                        Comments about D'Addario EXL110W Nickel Regular Light Wound 3rd Electric Guitar Strings:

                        I recently bought a Carvin SH550, paid a lot for this custom guitar. I was so tickled when it came in. I plugged it in, tuned it up and played. I was disappointed, didn't sound right. Tried playing with settings on my amp, tone controls, etc. Just wasn't right... sounded out of tune, I couldn't figure it out, because intonation was dead on, it has locking tuners... After a couple of weeks of wondering if I just got a lemon somehow, I re-strung with a set of D'Addario EXL 110w's I had in my Telecaster case. Buddy, that was the secret! The guitar sounds, plays like I knew it should... The wound G holds better tune. The fact that it doesn't bend like some guitarists want makes it hold better tune if you don't fret it precisely right, I guess that's it. I should also say that I'm primarily an acoustic player, maybe the wound G feels better. I definitely like the tonal characteristics better when chording, and I play mostly rhythm. But even when I'm running scales or picking little licks, the wound G sounds great. I will never go to another set of strings again. I'm sold.
                        The wound third (G) on this set is the key feature, and it makes a big difference to the overall tone. It also solved a bothersome tuning problem.
                        I've been very satisfied with the life of these strings. I seldom break one, they keep bright tone for a long time. Just wipe 'em down after every performance and you'll probably double the string life. They may not last as long as treated/coated strings, but the other factors make these my strings of choice.
                        I hope D'Addario makes these available in bulk sets soon. Until then I'll pay the low price a set for individual sets, still a bargain. Even in the stores they're one of the best values on the shelf.
