I have been playing for 47 years. I have tried all the strings that are made, even back in the day of Black Diamonds. These are not the best feeling or the longest lasting but they are the most consistent in sound and staying in tune. If you have a problem with them drop them an email for help. Since players are all different and use different attack with picks or with fingers the best string is what works for them...I'm sure I have had a problem with them somewhere over the years but I can't remember when. If you have a problem it's the guitar or the installation process.

Comments about D'Addario EXL120 Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings Single-Pack:

My first guitar was a gift from my very good friend, who also is a guitar luthier.
The Telecaster came with EXL120s on it, and thats what I learned on.
I purchased a 10 pack late 2010, and I use them on my Tele. and my Jackson 2002 DKMG.
After a string change and a good stretching EXL120s settle right in.
Good for about 120 hrs before they start to fade. You get a quality set of strings every time.
Intonation holds true with every set.

      Comments about D'Addario EXL120 Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings Single-Pack:

      I bought these strings for my Now disabled husband. He is a self taught musician and taught our son how to play. He became disabled in Feb of 2014, subdural hematoma so severe it caused a stroke. He just recently started showing interest in playing again, so I picked up a cheap guitar we call his therapy guitar. I ordered these strings and picks, but did take a while for strings to come. Still waiting for picks!! Not sure if I will order again.

          The best tone and perfect feel on each note , these strings are far better than most available today .
          I was able to glide across the fret board effortlessly. Do yourself a favor and clean the frets , remove oxidation from the frets and you will notice a major difference . Rick....

                        The industry standard for electric guitar strings. I have tried the vast majority of brands out there and I always come back to D'Addario. They sound and feel great. They are consistently high quality (something a lot of high end string brands can't say). They are an incredible value. (Considering how many expensive branded strings are manufactured by D'Addario, it makes no sense to pay two or three times the price just for their labels on the package.)

                        Throw in the fact that D'Addario is an environmentally friendly company and offers player point rewards, it's a no-brainer.

                            Of course great strings are a matter of opinion, but in my opinion, you can't get better than D'Addario. These are great on my Fender Strat, nice bright, consistent tone. Wouldn't use anything else.

                              In my opinion, D'Addarios are the best. I tried a set of Ernie Ball's, but they broke in like a week. I've been using a set of these strings for about 3 weeks. and I just like the feel/tone of D'Addarios.
