Perfect Strings for a Gibson Guitar

By zach-w80gA

from Massachussetts

See all my reviews

Comments about Gibson Vintage Reissue 3-Pack VR11 Electric Guitar Strings:

The strings are wonderful. They are .11's, so yes, they are harder to bend. They'll give your fingers a workout. Everyone's used to lighter gauges these days but originally all they made were .12's. Lighter gauges sacrifice tone for easy playing, but the guitar isn't supposed to be easy. These strings are NOT FOR A FENDER GUITAR. Why anyone would want to use these with a strat or a tele is beyond me. They'll sound great on your Les Paul or any other Gibson.

Ripped Guts

By Gibsoned

from pasadena, TX

Comments about Gibson Vintage Reissue 3-Pack VR11 Electric Guitar Strings:

These guitar strings nearly ripped out my guitars guts!! They should be called vintage Mandingos. I got a fender strat and in the process of tuning these wonderful strings I nearly snapped my guitar in two pieces. So Buyer Beware. They produce a great tone, but are they worth it?

Deep and warm tone

By Gibsonchick

from Ledyard, CT.

Comments about Gibson Vintage Reissue 3-Pack VR11 Electric Guitar Strings:

I just had my Gibson CS-356 re-strung with these strings. Wonderful sound. The tech who re-strung my guitar in the music store was so impressed with the sound of these strings that he described it as "insane" and jokingly wanted to buy my guitar.

Good strings, harder to bend

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Gibson Vintage Reissue 3-Pack VR11 Electric Guitar Strings:

These strings are just as good as any other Gibson strings I've used. They give a really good tone. The only problem is, since they're thicker, they're harder to bend. It's better to try different gauges and then choose which suits you best for your fingers and your style of playing. Overall, all Gibson strings are really good.

    Comments about Gibson Vintage Reissue 3-Pack VR11 Electric Guitar Strings:

    I've experimented with many other brands looking for the best strings for tone and tuning. I keep coming back to these Gibson's and I believe the cost is worth it if you really want great tone. I play a Gretsch Electromatic hollow body and also an Epiphone ES-175 full hollow body. The tone is so big and full and they stay in tune as well as any string I've ever tried and better than just about any. I play through a Fender tube amp (Blues Deville) and get compliments at every gig on my tone.

          I always use D'Addario strings, but decided to give these a try on my Strat. I play alot of SRV and wanted a to try another string. I got these in 11's and they sound great! I still am loyal to D'Addario, but man these strings have a cool tone too!

                Just wanted to set the record straight because of a reviewer who stayed these strings were for Gibson guitars only. Nothing could be further from the truth as far as my experience. I string all my guitars with these and they all love them. The tone is unbeatable and they outlast other pure nickel strings. My friend say why do you make it hard on yourself using 11s? Because it's worth it.
