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

I use these strings on my '67 model Gretsch Tennesean and Rickenbacker 330. The tone quality and playability are very much like the Gibson E340L strings I used in the "60s. I play classic rock and the strings bring the old Gretsch and newer Ric to life. They take a little time to settle in after initial lacing but do stabilize and maintain intonation for the life of the string. Comfortable to play and bend and work well with tones generated by foot pedals. I'll continue to use them on these two guitars and would use them on my 12 string Strat when and if they become available.

        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:

        "WOW!" That's all I can say!

        I'm not sure if I'm a victim of the placebo effect or what, but I think these have resurrected the tone, feel, and overall playability of my Les Paul Trad.

        Sorry, I know it sounds like a bit much, but I've strung Ernie Ball Classics Slinkies, Super Slinkies, DR Blues in nickel, and even Blue Steels. All I can say is that the Vintage Reissue nickels in .010 - .046 are the way to go if you want to have that Southern rock sound.

        To further enhance my belief of these awesome strings, I checked my intonation, (as you should with every string change - gauge change, especially) and found I was just out of adjustment by a mousehair. My Paulie howls and wails perfectly now!

        "Only a Gibson [strung with Gibson strings] is good enough."

          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.

                  Good "feel", tone, and after initial stretch, maintain the tune in. These are great strings.

                  I put a set of these on my Les Paul back in 2006 and I've never used any other strings since. They sound beautiful,rich and warm and full, and have a very supple touch that feels just amazing. Then, as I continued to use them for their sound, thier long life and resistance to breaking impressed me even more.

                    An excellent sounding set of strings. I was kind of disappointed in the sound of my '56 Les Paul Gold Top reissue until I discovered these strings. Wow! What a difference! Thick, rich tone, with ringing harmonics to boot. Love 'em!
