Fender's patented bullet-end creates a sonic coupling between the string and bridge block, for rock-solid tuning stability and increased sustain. These strings are perfect for blues, jazz, and classic rock.

Fender has been an instrument of choice for many of the greatest musicians since 1946. Fender's popularity through the generations is a result of their design innovations and commitment to quality. The Original Bullets electric guitar strings reflect this legacy and are worthy of the Fender name. Attention to detail and the finest materials ensure that you will get the best feeling and greatest sounding strings, set after set.

    Comments about Fender 3150R Original Bullets Pure Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings - Regular:

    I tried other strings and found them to be difficult to keep in tune on my Squier Strat. Every time I would hit the term, it would be out of tune in seconds. Once I switched to the Bullet strings, they stayed in tune and improved the toffee of the guitar. I used 10's which are light enough to take a good bend yet strong enough not to break.

            These strings are not a bright as the Steel Bullets and mellow out the highs on a Tele. Pure Nickels give a more vintage sound closer to an early Tele. I used these on my Esquire. Same high guality and durability as the steel counterparts. Highly recommended!

              Comments about Fender 3150R Original Bullets Pure Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings - Regular:

              I never tried "pure nickel strings" before. Put these on a Fender Strat.
              Have another Fender Strat with Ernie Ball "nickel wound" strings. Both guitars
              have same "vintage noiseless" pickups and tone woods and necks.
              Tested guitars on same amp clean sound.
              "Pure nickels" have less output and a very nice warm sound.
              "Nickel wounds" have more output and a very nice brighter sound.
              Now I have two nice but different sounding Strat guitars.
              Is one better than the other? IMO No. Just different. If you have not tried
              Fender "pure nickels" give them a try. You might find a tone that you never
              heard before!

                    Is this particular gage of strings 10 to 46 bendable for lead? Because the 9 thru 42 are to thin for my carpal tunnel. Can't feel them very well.

                        I like 'em on my strats. The bullet makes better contact and they sound good and last a long time.
