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.

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.

              Perfect Fit For My 1973 Fender Mustang

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

                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.

                  This is 1st purchase through MF but I found the process very easy/efficient with quick response.
                  I only bought strings this time but they were excellent price and and will try MF again with any future need I have.
