Comments about Gibson VR10 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

These strings sounded great! it does kindve change ur tone a little, but thats a good thing because it makes it better. They last a decent amount of time but they do wear faster than some others. Compared to elxiers i would rather have the great gibson string tone than long string life anyway.

Comments about Gibson VR10 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

These are the best strings I've ever had on my guitar! I have a LTD ESP EC-1000 Deluxe and these strings sound great on it. I've tried the Ernie Ball Cobalts and changed them after two weeks of use. Too bright and too noisy. I've gone through a lot of different brands of strings searching for a particular sound and I found it with these. I plan to order the Gibson Reissue as my main string from now on. They have great sustain and hold their tune really well also.

If you are looking for a good mellow sound that's not too bright, with good low's and mid-range then these are for you.

Great strings - if you change them often

By sheaman-tDtug

Comments about Gibson VR10 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

I've been using these for a while, and they worked nicely, sounded great, all that stuff. About a month ago they started to wear out and make dents where the frets were. Gradually, they sounded worse and worse, and just snapped. I would recommend these to people who change their strings often, don't mind paying a little extra, and like the vintage tone.

Gibson VR10 strings

By Community User

Comments about Gibson VR10 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

Very satisfied so far. I play my guitars hard. So far, no breakage. Will buy more of these.
Only had these on my Les Paul for a couple of weeks, but WOW! Very smooth, vintage tone. I play Blues/Rock and these things are perfect for the sound that I was looking for. Brings out the best tone from my Les Paul. Pure nickel strings are the best for Classic Rock & Blues.
These are slightly higher priced than the Fender Nickels that I use on my Strat, but would you put Fender strings on a Gibson? Or vice-versa? Definetely recommend these for your Gibby if you play Blues or Classic Rock!

      Comments about Gibson VR10 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

      Pure bliss on any Gibson (mostly all I play). Restrung my brand new Gibby LP with these, and it feels, plays, and sounds like a proper LP.

      Great tone. Tuning stability. No fret buzz. Low amplified string noise. Long lasting. What more do you need?

      I've played a lot of strings, from EB Slinky & Cobalts, DiAddario, ClearTone, Elixir, and even Gibson. These VRs are my favorite by far.

        Comments about Gibson VR10 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

        I love the sound of pure nickel strings and these are some of the best! Warm vintage tone, easy bends, and they retain their sound longer than any others I've tried. My '56 Goldtop Reissue with P-90s sounds particularly good. And my '58 Standard sustains for days!

            Comments about Gibson VR10 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

            These are thick, thickest 10's I've ever bought ever. Hard to initially gauge and wind. Like actual wire. Upside is that they are great sounding tone, very much like having acoustic strings on an electric. Not good for concerts where most may want thinner reliables.
