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.

PRS no Fender yes..............

Strings are to light to get the heavy tones on a PRS through a tube amplifier but work well on a Fender Stratocaster.

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

      I have been using D'Addario strings for over 20 years and have never gotten a bad batch!

      I put a set of EXL110w (.10-.46 with wound G) on my new 2016 "Inspired by 1966" Epiphone Century and they sound great.

      One thing I've noticed about D'Addarios is that, once they settle in and the initial "bright newness" has mellowed a bit (but not too much), they tend to hold that tone for an impressively long time, which makes their character sound very predictable.

      Anyway, I see no reason to change brands and highly recommend them to anyone looking to get a consistently great sound out of their guitar.

          Best value nickel plated wound G light gauge set out there. Harsher than pure nickel wrap but if you want an 18 wound G you don't really have an alternative.

                  If you've had problems keeping the G String in tune on medium-light strings (10's), fear no longer. These have all of the tone of regular XL's and the wound third keeps it all tightly tuned. I use some bigtime bends on the G with my hard rock music and have no issues.I've read that some people have a problem bending a wound third. Maybe I just have caveman hands...I highly recommend these strings.
