I bought these strings a couple of weeks ago and absolutely love them. I have tried pretty much all brands of strings out there, and until just recently used Dean Markley strings exclusively. I figured I would give these a try. I have always had trouble with my guitar strings getting a sticky feel to them after a few days of use. These strings have remained with a nice slick feel since putting them on a Les Paul and a Fender Stratocaster. They have a great sound that is not too bright. They sound super on bridge position with distortion, and neck position for smooth solo playing. I will continue to buy these for my four guitars along with the Dean Markleys. Give them a try if you are considering a different guitar string brand.

I have been having problems with the EXL 120s lately, especially on my Les Paul and '61 reissue LP SG. Those two instruments have been rock solid in tunign for years. Both have TonePros System 2 TOM and aluminum stop bar. Could not maintain tuning in either instrument, especially low E, D, and G strings. Tuning machines are Grover Klusons 18:1 too. I have a rack test instrument with no pups to see if I was doing something wrong, but found by slightly overwinding that they come apart at the ball end, and pretty easily too. Went to Ernie Ball Stainless,and problem is solved. Don't see how D'addario can claim "consistent quality and intonation" when they won't stay in tune in the first place. Cheap strings=headaches. Don't buy them.

    Comments about D'Addario EXL120 Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings (3-Pack):

    I've used D'Add EXL120 and EXL110 strings consistently since the 70's, and see no reason to change. IMO, you can't get any better strings for the money.

      Comments about D'Addario EXL120 Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings (3-Pack):

      I've been a fan of Daddario acoustic strings for quite some time now and decided to give their EXL line a shot. I threw a set of the EXL120's on an ESP LTD 401FR and I could not be happier with the tone and feel I'm getting from them.

              These strings work very well on electric guitars with tremolo systems desiring an extra light gauge. They hold up well, stay fresh and stay in tune as well as any strings I have used in 62 years on many stages.

                      I was a dedicated D'Addario sting user for year. I stopped for more budget priced strings as I am on a fixed income now. The price was right here.

                        I tried Carvin electric guitar strings and they were low-quality: they just fell apart/disassembled at the ball end. I have never been disappointed with D'addario electric guitar strings. They last long and sound great. The sets of strings are sealed in plastic so you can keep backups without them rusting. Highly recommended.
