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

      These things are fantastic, I'd happily pay twice as much for them.

      Got a set of these after using D'Addario EXL110s (10p) on my Ibanez AF55 for a few months. Loved them, strings seemed to last forever, despite frequent tuning changes. I actually changed the last set just so I could try out the EXL110Ws.

      Wow. The little third string, less than half a millimeter in diameter, feels great. It even stays in tune a little better. I personally prefer the sound of wound strings to plain, so having an extra wound string is like a bowl of ice cream with every chord.

        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.

                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...
