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.

I've been playing for over 20 years and recently bought a Fender Strat. I liked the way it played so I decided to put the same strings it came with. All of the plain strings had imperfections on it like rust or rough spots. I've been through 100's of string packs from various manufacturers and never saw such bad quality control before. I emailed Fender customer service and with my issues along with photos. No response from them at all. Not worth the effort of a return to MF, but my opinion of Fender has just went big time.

GOOD STUFF
I've used these sense I got my strat. Came with them on it. No probems at all. The ends don't get stuck in the wammy if it brakes like the regular strings do. Tone is good. Been playing for 40 + years. Gospel rock, Gospel Country Gospel anything.

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

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.

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

    The star review should be 5 out of 6. Put the first 5 strings on with no problems (locking tuners on my new Tele Elite) but the high E string pulled right out of the bullet as I was tuning. Hoping GC will replace the bad one. The five that made it sound OK but can't give a complete review until the high E string is replaced. The original Fender strings sounded great but replaced the pick guard and hence the strings. (That's the problem with locking tuners. Once you take a string off you can never get it back on.)

              I am sold on the "Bullet" end. Fender calls it a "sonic coupling" between your guitar's tailpiece & the string. Makes sense. No gaps like a ball end. I've been using them for over 10 years.

                  These strings may seem a little light for some tastes, but I keep coming back to them.
                  These strings are a perfect fit for my 1973 Fender Mustang. The bullet end seats perfectly in the spring-loaded tailpiece of the tremolo mechanism assuring the intimate contact necessary for proper operation while maintaining maximum sustain and tone.
                  If your guitar was made for bullet-end strings - definately use Fender Bullets.

                    I only bought strings this time but they were excellent price and and will try MF again with any future need I have.

                          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.

                              Fender California Colors picks adds a bit of fun.

                                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.
