    I bought these strings for my teenage son to use on his electric guitar. They are smooth with a very light touch. Sounds great! A breeze to change from the old strings.

        Comments about D'Addario EXL130 Nickel Extra Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

        These strings are my favorite because they sound good and they're easy to play. You can grab a chord easily and you don't have to cut your finger to do a whole step bend. They have good tone and intonation also. The nickel plated steel are by far my favorite for their feel and tone. They're super light but not slinky. They allow you to play more sensitively and relaxed. I play rock and jazz you don't need heavy strings to get jazz tone. I think it's more about your touch than the gauge of the strings. Definitely give them a try, I think the nickel wound D'addarios are the best brand. And if you like light strings these are great.

        don't laugh

        Comments about D'Addario EXL130 Nickel Extra Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

        I was surprised to see DÁddario still made strings this gauge. Macho guitarists might laugh at strings this skinny, but Hendrix and Page both used 8s as soon as they became available in the late 60s (Hendrix) and early 70s (Page). Great for deep bends, obviously, easy on the fingers, and plenty meaty sounding if you're pumping a double-stack. I prefer 9 hybrids (heavy bottom) but for oldschoolers these are great. Not for jazz ;)

        Comments about D'Addario EXL130 Nickel Extra Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

        I bought these for my tele, and i bend and detune like crazy with them. I must have gotten a good set or something, because even with tuning between dadgad, open g, open d, drop d, and standard, and even after all the soloing I do, these babies are still intact. I do probably need a new set, but these suckers last! Get 'em!

        Comments about D'Addario EXL130 Nickel Extra Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

        I put these on my Ibanez hollow-body with floating bridge (not good) and it didn't have enough tension/pressure to hold down the bridge. So I just had them as backups for shows and whatnot, but then, I played my acoustic and noticed it needed new strings. So I put these on and it just sings now! It sounds way better than it did ever with Elixir's on it! I LOVE THESE STRINGS!!!!

        Uh-oh. Be extremely careful!

        Comments about D'Addario EXL130 Nickel Extra Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

        These extra super light gauge D'addario strings may be great for bending, but they are bound to break even more easily than regular super light gauge strings. Take care!!
