    Comments about Gretsch Guitars Chet Atkins Pure Nickel 10-48 Electric Guitar Strings 10 Pack:

    Maybe a moot point to comment on those strings, I don't think MF carries them anymore, but I really liked the sound of them on my 2013 Epiphone Dot. The bass ends up strong but clear. On the other hand I find that the strings don't last long, especially the wound 3rd. The winding literally disappears at the fret. you see a feel a notch in the string where the winding got rubbed off on the fret. I got them on clearance for a buck fifty a set, so it'sq not a big deal, but I would not recommend them at full price since they were pretty expensive to start with and don't last long.

                    I put a set of these strings on my Chet Atkins style guitar and couldn't be happier. I had been using 11's, but these 10's with the wound 3rd sound great and the price was unbeatable.
