I started using 250r strings when I bought my american fender Nashville edition telecaster b-bender. This is what comes stock on it. I use my bender a lot pulling my b string up a whole note and bending lots of other notes on other strings and I've never broke a string. The tones is great and the value is exceptional. You can afford to change them more often... use them on all my electrics.

These strings were on the Classic 50s strat that I recently bought. I just wasn't happy with the tone - I like warmth when I'm playing clean. I decided to switch to the Fender 150 pure nickel strings that I normally use. Much, much better. I'm not knocking these strings for quality. It's just that pure nickel sounds so much better than nickel plated steel. I can always turn my amp up if I need more output.

Use these for that Fender sound

By RickVogue

from SF Bay Area

Comments about Fender 250R Super 250 Nickel-Plated Steel Electric Strings:

I recently bought a road worn 50s strat which came with these strings. I made the error of changing the strings to ernie ball slinky 10s... and said yuck. I went back to the fender 250r strings which I believe is extremely integral to getting that "real strat" sound, that real Fender strat sound. Hard to explain, but that's why I highly recommend these for fender guitars, over other string brands. That's my 2 cents worth. :)

Comments about Fender 250R Super 250 Nickel-Plated Steel Electric Strings:

I've played pretty much every brand of strings musicians friend sells. Dean markley, elixir, ernie ball, d'addario, cleartone, sit, ghs, thomastik, dr, and gibson. I can say that some brands of strings might be voiced better to a particular guitar.. But for my custom les paul these .10's fender 250 nickels are the best i've ever played. The feel is great, they're bright and they last a good 2-3 weeks w/ string cleaner. I play 2hrs a night. Love em' bought a bunch. try em they're cheap!

        Comments about Fender 250R Super 250 Nickel-Plated Steel Electric Strings:

        Ok, I've tried just about every string available at one time or another. Thought I was a D'Addario guy for a while, then thought DR's were the ones, but these strings sound better by far on both my main guitars. I like a real crisp string. Something that retains a good snap, and doesn't get dull or thuddy after a gig or two. These do that. They retain that new string feel and sound even when nicely broken in. What can I say , they get the job done for me. I play a 2005 Gretsch 6120, and an Epiphone Emperor modded with P-90's. The Fender 250's sound the best so far on both those instruments hands down.

                              This is the string that came on my American Deluxe Telecaster. Tried different brands and kept coming back to Fender. Fender has stepped up their string manufacturing in the past few years. I can use these strings gig after gig and the tone is awesome with my Tele.
