OVERVIEW

Invest in precious metal to reap the benefits of dynamic musical tones.

Gauges: 09-11-16-24-32-42.

Fender's Super Bullets Nickel-Plated Steel (NPS) electric guitar strings combine the high output and dynamic sound of steel with the smooth feel of nickel. The Fender 3250L strings are perfect for rock and other styles of music where the guitar needs to cut through. The patented bullet-end creates a sonic coupling between the string and bridge block, for rock-solid tuning, stability, and increased sustain.

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. These light 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.

I just put these on my Strat after getting tired of how often my 8s broke. These rock!! Took almost nothing to get used to, and they sound so much fuller and edgier than my old 8s. If i could replace them every 2 weeks i would because thats when they sound the best. They are fantastic for the music i play and blow the pure nickle 8s i had away.

3250L Nickel-Plated Steel Bullet-End

Same gauge strings as what came on my American Standard Strat, with the added sustain of the bullet end.

        I really like these strings because of the "bullet" terminations. They seem to stay in tune better than any other string I've used. I use them on a Stratocaster and even on my Les Paul.

          The strings sound nice. I'm not nearly an expert on guitar, but I'm satisfied with the tone.

            Fender strings on a Fender Telecaster or Stratocaster with Fender picks give the best overall sound, sustain and quality available.
            Fender California Colors picks adds a bit of fun.

              Comments about Fender 3250L Nickel-Plated Steel Bullet-End Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

              These strings make my 1996 American Stratocaster sound bright and bold. Lead guitarists will probably love them. I play rhythm guitar and find them a little "forward-sounding" for my taste. They do have a nice feel and seem very well made. I am going to give them a while to see if they mellow out before deciding whether to keep them or change them out for pure nickel strings.

              I purchased these strings by the dozen. Two out of every dozen seems to have a faulty E string. I play a Parker Fly so I have to have the bullets. The .009 string will pull threw the bullet rendering that string useless. Therefor having to break up another set to compensate for the loss. Very annoying to say the least. If I didn't have to have the bullets I would buy other strings. They need better quality control. However they still sound great and last well. For this reason I give them a four rating.

                        These strings work good on PRS guitars with floating trems too.

                          these are original fender equipment. OEM for my strat. Thats why I bought them and I have no complaints! Great tone and strength. I use a med pick and my fingers they play very easily. You wont be disappointed.

                            I bought several sets of these strings because I liked the originals on a strat I'd bought. The strings feel good and I like the tone mix with the strat - very musical. The tension isn't as even as some other brands but the sound is more distinctive. The low E string was slightly out of tune on one set that I've tried but all the rest were good. There is no airtight packaging - just paper envelopes. They stay in tune well with the trem and the sound on my strat was just right.
