          Comments about GHS GB8 1/2 Boomers Ultra Light+ Electric Guitar Strings:

          I have a schecter C-1 pro which is like a C-1 artist.(25.5" Scale, fixed bridge,string through body.) Awesome guitar but the bends can be a little tough after a while no matter what string or set up that I tried. So I found a set of these GHS 8.5's and was amazed how they bend a little further but still felt like 9's. Strong sound. They last quite a while and seem to be the solution for this guitar and my aging hands.

              Comments about GHS GB8 1/2 Boomers Ultra Light+ Electric Guitar Strings:

              I play lead guitar in a classic rock band. I injured my fretting hand in and industrial accident in '03 and hard a hard time after that with the 9-40's. The 8-38's were noodly and didn't stay in tune. The 8.5-40's hold the tone, stay in tune, take a beating, and are easy to bend. 25.5 scales are tighter--- most 24.75 are good. Every now and then a 24.75 will feel a little loose. The GHS seem to hold their tone and bite week after week, along with their strength. Used them for 10 years--- stickin' with them. A good deal.

              Comments about GHS GB8 1/2 Boomers Ultra Light+ Electric Guitar Strings:

              Being a female guitar player, I love the fact that the gauge of these strings lets me easily play chords of all types while still making for a great sound - the only place I have found this size strings is through Musicians Friend - so thank you for that
