      I use these on three of my guitars (10's): 77 Starfire IV; '93 G&L Legacy; and '98 Bluesbird. They really match well and are always consistent.

        Comments about GHS Light Burnished Nickel Guitar Strings:

        I use these strings in the .011-.052 set using a Fender Stratocaster with Fender Blackface overdriven reverb amp. The Burnished Nickle Rockers offer a beautiful vintage low-output tone right out of the package, with a silky feel and are so easy to bend due to the smooth, polished surface. Trebles are clear and bright, the basses resonant and punchy,giving you a vibrant clean tone going into effects pedals or amp distortion, thanks to the lower output. These strings are strong and long lasting, hard to break, slow to rust, and sound good for weeks, perfect for a string-changing slacker-ace-type player. Value-priced, easy to find (online), but well worth the search and sticking with a reliable supplier. To my ears these win out over D'Addario XL, Ernie Ball Cobalt, Dean Markley Signature and Elixir Polyweb. Highly recommended for blues and country styles due to overall tone, "slidability" and their non-wound plain steel third string.

        Comments about GHS Light Burnished Nickel Guitar Strings:

        Playing 47 years, gigging since age 14. These strings feel better than the Fender Pure Nickels that I have been using. They sound better, slightly clearer. Because nickels have slightly less output, it allows me to get more drive or sustain before distortion and I like strong fat heavy sustained sound without the buzzy fizzy distortion. Think classic rock, blues, southern rock and slide guitar. Excellent for single coils and P90s!

          Comments about GHS Light Burnished Nickel Guitar Strings:

          I've used or tried many strings. I have settled on nickel because I like the sound and feel. But still, strings are just strings and unless they are cheaply made there's not that much of interest to me. Well, that being said, I did get pretty excited about these strings. They just play and feel so nice. They are polished smooth and shiny, and it does make a big difference.

          i also have used ghs strings forever, so when i found these strings, and tried them, i will never buy anything else, period. they are smooth, clean and bright, and at least i can notice the difference. they are well worth the price, meaning they seem to hold up against dirt and oil from your fingers. just try them. thanks ghs !!!

          well three are

          By Anonymous

          Comments about GHS Light Burnished Nickel Guitar Strings:

          Thought I'd try them out. It says "burnished nickel--great for benders." Well yeah, the three wound strings are. The three high strings which most people bend more than the wound strings are just regular plain steel. I do like how the wound strings feel and play, a bit of the winding is sanded down, they aren't flatwound feeling, but the edge of a regular wound string is gone. Nice to play for sure. The price isn't too high so I can overlook the hype they try to sell them as. overall they are worth checking out.

          The Sound and Feel of GHS

          By Stratman64

          from Lillington, North Carolina

          Comments about GHS Light Burnished Nickel Guitar Strings:

          I've used GHS forever, and found them to be not only quality strings, but sound great as well. But, GHS has really gone beyond that now with these BN strings. Bringing back the old tone of the early days of the 50's - 70's . For you all using 9-42, they make them as well, just have to search a little. Great job guys..

          BEST STRINGS EVER!!!

          By telecastersrock

          from West Virginia

          Comments about GHS Light Burnished Nickel Guitar Strings:

          woah, after having used ghs boomers, and various other strings, theese are the best strings i've used so far and have great tone, and the great thing is, they sound great right after you put them on, they don't need to be worn in to sound good (unlike the boomers) great smooth feel, but I can't bend as easy as the boomers, but I'm using 10's instead of my normal 9's. try out theese strings, they are awesome!

          Best electric guitar strings

          By Jim Van Horn-GxFRg

          from Clinton, Arkansas

          Comments about GHS Light Burnished Nickel Guitar Strings:

          These are flat-out the best unknown strings in America. I have used them on Strats, Duo-Sonics, Jaguars, Mustangs and Telecasters. They are the finest pure nickel strings I have ever used. Buy a set --you will be one happy guitar player!
