    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.

    I've used Dean Markley, Ernie Ball, GHS Boomers, Gibson and Fender strings. I prefer these strings for their feel, tone and longevity.

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

      These are pretty good strings, nothing special that I have found. I have them on two guitars. I do a lot of heavy bends on the D and G strings and they stay in tune pretty well. Pretty much the same as the Ernie Ball strings I had been using. I'll buy more, especially at the multi pack sale price.

                  These strings do a good job for me. They chord easily and have a bright sound. They are easily "bent" and return to tune very well.I have used them for years and never had a problem. For the price, you can't go wrong!
