    I recently purchased a Gibson Les Paul Studio Silverburst from MF. One thing I read several times in the reviews was that you need to put new strings on a new guitar. Seemed odd since the strings were presumably new but I decided to buy the 10 ga. Gibson strings since that is what came with the guitar. I could not believe the difference it made, the tone, ring and clarity with the new strings was incredible. I suppose the original strings had lost their edge since they were new when the guitar was manufactured but probably sat in a warehouse for a while before the guitar was shipped. One thing I found out is that you have to call MF's toll free number in order to get the discounts they offer when purchasing some manufacture's items, including Gibson's. If you try to order them online it shows that you get the discount but the price doesn't change. My experience with the call center staff at MF has always been excellent, they are very friendly and helpful. And to be honest I would rather speak with a real person than do an impersonal online order anyway.

        Comments about Gibson Vintage Reissue 3-Pack VR10 Electric Guitar Strings:

        I've been through many strings trying to get that authentic 59' Les Paul tone for my guitar. I have a wonderful '58 Les Paul historic (CR8) that is absolutely the best sounding guitar I've ever owned. With less expensive strings such as ernie ball, etc. the guitar still sounds good but it doesn't have "that tone"...with these strings, it's a match made in heaven! You get that warm nickel tone without any harsh ice pick treble that are apparent in other strings...just a nice, rounded tone all around. The only other strings that have come close to these are the DR blues. And the feel of these strings are incredible...easy to bend and feel silky smooth!

          I was looking for a string set to put on a Gibson Les Paul, that had A warm tone for slide guitar. I do A lot of Led Zeppelin and Traditional electric blues. These string were exactly what I was Looking for.

                  Great action, great strings for my '86 Gibson Paul Standard. Significant improvement over the cheaper strings.

                      These strings ring long and loud, stay in tune, last forever, and never break even with constant bending. I do always clean them well after every session with GHS Fast Fret, which is probably half of the equation. The other half is good quality steel and construction.

                      My Gibson Les Paul Studio & Epiphone Les Paul Custom both shipped new with these strings and as the saying goes, "you dance with the one who brought you!"
                      These strings are the MOST comfortable and best sounding I've ever played.
                      They stay in tune and the intonation is "spot on".
                      Being a Contemporary Christian guitarist, my playing is not very extreme. I take very good care of my equipment, and these strings have lasted the longest of any others I've tried (EB's DR's).
                      As other reviews have noted, they may seem a little pricey, but a thousand dollar guitar deserves The Best and these strings are It. Forget the others and go with these, you've tried the rest, now go with The Best!
                      Could be priced a little lower : )

                      I didn't realize how good a string could be

                      Comments about Gibson Vintage Reissue 3-Pack VR10 Electric Guitar Strings:

                      A friend gave me a set of these and said I had to try them. They sat around a couple weeks until I decided to try them on my MIM beater Strat. I changed one at a time while plugged in to hear a difference. Indeed there was, there was a clarity to the new strings I could hear with each one I replaced. It wasn't just the fact they were new, the set on the guitar were new also, I just wanted to see if there was a difference. Almost all those unwanted overtones were gone, a little less bright but in a good way. I used Ernie Ball regular's for years because they were easy to bend but these bend easy also, they feel even more silky. I ordered 9 sets right away, I own 40+ guitars but changed strings on some of my main players and it improved the sound greatly, especially on my '73 LP Deluxe. They cost more but are worth it, it's like putting cheap gas in a $30,000 car, you have a $1000+ guitar so 8 bucks for a set of strings is nominal for such an improvement in sound. Been playing over 40 years. I recommend you try them, all you've got to lose is a couple bucks, you might find you have discovered a great new tone.
