I have a Les Paul and a Strat. These guitars are like night and day when it comes to sound and feel. When it comes to sound each is unique which is why we all like them. But they have a different feel when the same string gauge is put on each guitar and that is due to their scale lengths. A Les Paul is 24 3/4" scale and a Strat is 25 1/2. When you put 10's on a Strat they feel tighter then on a Les Paul. I found it frustratingly difficult to go from one to the next. I looked into it and calculated the string tension of different gauge sets for both guitars and found that putting the D'addario EXL120+ (9.5's) on my Strat that the string tension closely matched that of 10's on the Les Paul. When I tested this out on the guitars I was amazed at how much alike the two guitars felt. String bends were more accurate and playing more rewarding. If anyone has a preference of one guitar to another because of how the strings feel, I recommend trying different size sets to match the tension that that does feel good in your hands. More guitars will feel better and that only means...now you can have a bigger arsenal of guitars. We all like having more guitars!!!!

I've had these strings on my Telecaster for 5 days and they already show significant signs of wear. They actually showed some in the two spots I played most (I was working on a particular solo at the time) after less than 24 hours. Brand new, the tone was OK and the feel was about average, but after less than a week they look like some strings do after months. I may have gotten a dud, but as for the set I got, they were just plain awful.

      Comments about D'Addario EXL120+ Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      Love these strings. They fill the gap between 9's and 10's. Easier to bend than 10's and more tone than 9's. Wish they came in a 3-pack.

        After using .010-.046s on my Telecasters for years I deccided to give these a shot and the difference is both noticeable and pleasant. There's just enough more give to them that bends are a little more effortless and controlled and yet I hear no tonal difference from .010s. I like them.

          I have used D'Addario strings for many years, having grown up in the same part of Long Island where these are manufactured ..... these 9.5's work perfectly for many playing styles on my Telecaster and Flying V and they produce plenty of cruch, singing leads and lovely harmonics. And the price is just right, a very good value for the money.

            Comments about D'Addario EXL120+ Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

            Down through the years I've used many types of strings and these are my strings of choice. They have a great sound and long life. I prefer to use a slightly lighter E & B, but always use D'Addario's. Really. Any time I have tried some other type of string, it has been a mistake. These are excellent strings and are priced fairly.

            Comments about D'Addario EXL120+ Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

            Yea, gona go back to the other brand again, the top 6th string sounds half dead already, and the 4th string won't stay in tune for very long. Overall, these strings have poor sound quality and they have to be tighter than usual to be in tune. I don't think they even try their own product before they push them out to the public. But for the cheap price, it was no great loss. Live and Learn.

                  I have been playing gigs for over 40 years. My string choice has changed from time to time. I found that the EXL120+ have fit my current musical situation.Heavy enough to give me a big sound when I am playing rhythm, and flexible enough to cut the leads. Just ordered 10 more sets for my LP and Strat...
