      Comments about Gibson G700L Brite Wires Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

      I've used lots of strings over the last 40 years, Slinky's (which are good), GHS, etc. but I tried a set of these about 16 years ago and have stuck with them. I still try others, but come back to the Gibson strings. For country/blues with lots of bending and abuse, they have stood up better than any other string and still sound good. Using on Teles and Strats, but have on Pauls as well. Nice ring with single coils. And yes, once you stretch them just a little, they stay in tune even with lots of bending. Rock solid strings for a working musician.

          Comments about Gibson G700L Brite Wires Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

          I had bought about 8 different sets of strings for some experiments I had to carry out for my physics project and the Brite wires were the last set I had to test so I decided to leave them on my Jackson JS30KE. 6 months after, I recorded something for a contest and the sound is still so professional! Unbelievable! The words that come to me when describing these strings are durability, strength, consistency and professional tone. I don't play everyday, but maybe around 6 hours a week but the feel remained incredibly consistent although they aren't as flexible and bendable as DR High Voltage which I also tested for my experiments, but I got used to them quickly (my finger strengh improved) and they just adapted to my style without any problems; I change a lot from standard E to drop D and they hold their tuning, they deliver the chugging sound, pinch harmonics and they howl when pushed hard. What surprised me the most was that they did not break at whatever punishment I threw at them; hard picking, careless fast strumming, temperature changes, hand sweat, different tunings, exteme bends etc... Not the most flexible strings out there, but incredibly consistent and solid in tone and durability.

          Very happy with these strings...

          By Jim Farmer

          from Kentucky

          Comments about Gibson G700L Brite Wires Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

          For the new guys like me who are tired of having a crummy sounding guitar but not knowing what to do about it ...try these strings!

          I'm running an epiphone sg with gibson burstbuckers through a fender tube amp...not a bad situation but still couldn't get an appealling sound. Was looking at replacing the epihone with a new gibson or the fender with a marshall but thought I would try these strings first as they had such good reviews and don't cost anywhere near as much as a new guitar or amp...bye bye gibson/marshall (for now)!

          I've tried various sets of strings in the past. Of which, some were clearly more appealling than others but none clearly stood out or improved the sound of the guitar all that much. These gibson strings are a different story though....clear, powerful, slick....and cheap.

          So if you're new like I am and having trouble getting your guitar to get a good rock/metal sound, give these strings a try.

          Amazing! But not for me..

          Comments about Gibson G700L Brite Wires Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

          These strings sound and play great! However, they just aren't for me. The strings faithfully capture a classic Gibson-like humbucker tone. The problem is, I play Kramer and Fender super-Strats! I would recommend these strings to other users, and may even recycle them for my brother's Casino.Overall, they are truly a step-up from Ernie Ball Regular Slinkys.

          The Perfect Strings

          By AInvisibleNinja

          from Beckville, TX

          Comments about Gibson G700L Brite Wires Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

          These are the best strings I have ever played! They have so much power and volume! I have never heard my humbuckers sound so clear and so aggresive! The only reason I rated the quality a 4.5 is because the B string would not bend around my tuner great and so it broke before I ever got it on. That is my mistake though so the strings are still the best I have ever used. Besides having amazing sound they are also extremely easy to play! My slides and bends are incredible now!

          Best strings yet

          Comments about Gibson G700L Brite Wires Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

          These strings have so much punch and attack. They also still create great tone which allows you to accentuate the subtleties in your playing. Great for ANY style of music. Overall control of the strings is phenomenal. So much bite. The musicians friend three pack deal is the best around.

          Comments about Gibson G700L Brite Wires Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

          I just got these strings, and they're great! They make this sharp tone with sort of an underlying deep, rich tone at the same time. Really nice playability, too (although I'm still getting used to stepping up from .9 gauge to .10 gauge.) I would definitely recommend these for Les Paul players.

          Wow!

          Comments about Gibson G700L Brite Wires Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

          I just purchased a Les Paul Studio with these on them. I USED to play strictly Elixirs and nothing else. I assumed the strings on my LP were old, so I replaced them with the only strings I had on hand which where Elixir .09's (I use them on my Strats). Anyways, I was very disappointed. The LP obv still sounded amazing, but was missing some of that LP Growl. I quickly went and bought these and I am happy to say the LP is back to barking. I never thought strings would make such a HUGE difference. Bottom line- if you have a Les Paul, buy these strings. End of story.
