Guys, the Super Bullets are a big part of what make Fender sound like Fender. If you're looking for a different sound, use a different string. These are the "OEM" parts for your rig.And, please -- do your audience a favor, and change your strings AT LEAST every 90 hours of playing time or 90 days, eh? Strings are NOT meant to last a year! They must sound like rotted canvas by that point! Every 30 hours/30 days is not uncommon for those who perform. How long a string "lasts" should be the LAST criterion on your selection list, not the first.Also, if you're breaking 'em right out of the package, get your guitar to a good guitar tech -- it's not the strings, it's your rig (a little 3-in-1 oil on a q-tip will likely solve the problem).I carry a couple of sets with my strat wherever it goes, and have found them to be completely consistent, reliable, and an incredible value for the money.

I've been playing guitar for about 10 years and by far these are the worst name brand strings you can go with. They have a terrible "new string" sound you can't wait to go. They break fast. I think the longest I had a pack of these on was 5 days.. yet Dunlop , D'Addario , GHS , Ernie Ball ...any other big company will last 1-3 months minimum.

I'm glad that Musiciansfriend doesn;t sell these any more and I'm getting sick of everything 4 or 5 starred when it doesn't deserve it. The only pull factor for me to get these was the bullets plus they where the first set of strings I bought when I took guitar seriously. I could restring any guitar in a shop as I've owned so many and these are the lowest of the low. The only company that is this low on my list is Dean Markley and their blue steel strings. Cryogenic freezing = strings that break fast and most shops can't wait to get rid of them.

25 years of Super Bullets

By BobEddy

from CA

Comments about Fender Super Bullets 3250L Light Electric Guitar Strings:

Great strings. Very flexible and nice full tone which lasts long after the strings should have been replaced. Use on my trem Strat, 71 and 59 Les Pauls. In 25 years I've only had a handful break. Maybe the guys complaining about breakeage have some bridge/saddle issues to deal with.

Disappointing...

Comments about Fender Super Bullets 3250L Light Electric Guitar Strings:

I've played many sets of 9s (9-42 and 9-46) and these are by far the worst, they stay in tune long and dont require as much stretching which is fantastic but they don't last! I'll play these for a week or two than the high E will break.. tone wise everyones different so im not going to discuss that. Overall the best 9s to me so far are GHS their cheaper, last longer and I like the tone more.. the only cool thing is the bullet tips on it so if anything I now think of these as novelty strings.

A must for non-locking trems

By Hercules shreds

from Colorado

Comments about Fender Super Bullets 3250L Light Electric Guitar Strings:

Fender Bullets are the only logical choice for non-locking trems. The Bullet shaped anchor does three things: More complete string/trem block engagement for better tone, but more importantly, the anchor does not dig into the block. I've had so many problems with the cylindrical style anchors getting stuck in the block and having to use pliers and scribes to get the string out when it's time to change strings. This also helps with tuning stability as the string tension will change slightly on cylindrical anchors as they dig into the block. As far as tone (anchor shape notwithstanding) and longevity, I'll put them up against D'Addario XLs or Dean Markleys any day. Anyone experiencing tuning issues, keep in mind that most non-locking trems will go out of tune if you use the bar. Also, don't forget to pre-stress your strings prior to initial tuning.

They really do make a difference

By Nog-wabSR

Comments about Fender Super Bullets 3250L Light Electric Guitar Strings:

I bought a 10-pack of these strings a couple of years ago, and I noticed right away how much better my Floyd Rose equipped guitars stayed in tune. I found it easier to dial in the action, and maintain the tuning. I was really surprised at the difference. Can't say why, but they just do. It's really disappointing that Fender no longer sells the 10-packs, so I decided to go with a pack of Ernie Ball Super Slinky's. Nothing wrong with the EB's, but the Super Bullets just hold up better with FR systems. Bring back the 10-packs, please!!!

D string breakage

By Kenny-A-WGr

from NY

Comments about Fender Super Bullets 3250L Light Electric Guitar Strings:

I've been using fender mediums (10s) before this and decided to try lights. I like the playability and sound but my D string has broken/unraveled at the bridge twice and after only a week of two of use. I hate changing strings so I may go back to mediums or try another brand of lights.

Long Lasting True Tone

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender Super Bullets 3250L Light Electric Guitar Strings:

String gauges are a personal thing. As a professional touring musician for over 25 yrs, I can honestly say for me, these are the best bar none. I tour with 4 Hamer Daytonas and these strings have been long lasting and consistent, with crystalline tone and spot-on intonation. Take my word for it. These strings kick a**!

Not the best

By FenStrat08

from New Jersey

Comments about Fender Super Bullets 3250L Light Electric Guitar Strings:

These strings are just OK. I got a nice clean tone from them, but hated the feel of them.I like EB Super Slinky's much better than Fender Super Bullets on on strat. Much better feel for faster playing and bending.

Comments about Fender Super Bullets 3250L Light Electric Guitar Strings:

They put these on most guitars that come out of Fender, although they are nice for bending and bell like twinkles. D'Addario EXL120 are the ones I like to replace them with. They last longer and just feel better. Fender makes good guitars but strings. Not the best out there.

The Fender Super Bullets 3250L Light

By Voxmanalways

from Atlanta, GA

See all my reviews

Comments about Fender Super Bullets 3250L Light Electric Guitar Strings:

I got these about 3 weeks ago, and I actually do regret it. They are great for bending. They are not so great for chords, or playing that fast. The reason for that is they are way too thin and light for my playing. I can barley play chords on them because they bend do easy and the chord goes flat because of that. I only had them for about a week or two and then they began to rust and get this black junk on them. I was very unhappy about that. What I'm trying to tell you is, these are not the best ones to buy. They are cheap, and that would be the only reason I would buy these again.
