I have two Hamer Daytonas ( 94 and 95) that I always use these on. Set 3250L. I was using D'Addario XL110's on my Les Pauls until I tried the 3250R set. Wow! What a difference. Incredible ringing sustain, perfect intonation, and they seem to last at least twice as long. Fender Bullets all the way. Get 'em! You'll be glad you did.

I had been using a different brand on my Stratocaster. These Fender bullet strings were recommended (won't say who). One of them broke immediately. The tone was poor and they wouldn't stay in tune. I went back to my other brand and they sound fine.

    Comments about Fender 3250R Super Bullets Nickel-Plated Steel Electric Guitar Strings:

    The bullet ends are what make these strings superb. If you play a strat like me with a Whammy Bar then you know that the strings can go out of tune quickly, but these stay in tune and have great sustain. They will definitely wake up your guitar.

        Best strings ever

        By StratMan420-yWJz6

        from Stratville, New Stratland

        Comments about Fender 3250R Super Bullets Nickel-Plated Steel Electric Guitar Strings:

        I have these on a Standard Stratocaster, made in Mexico. These things have incredible sustain, they stay in tune, they last a long time without losing any tone, they feel very smooth, they do not break even under the biggest bends, overall there are no problems with this set at all. Plus, they are reasonably priced. If you want great sounding, long lasting strings for your strat, look no further.

        Comments about Fender 3250R Super Bullets Nickel-Plated Steel Electric Guitar Strings:

        I've found these strings to sound the best, last long, and stay in tune the best for my strat. I've tried D'addario's, Slinky's, DR strings, and even those terrible Musician's Gear strings, but I always go back to these. They are very consistent.

                  The bullets work. I don't care what anybody says. You will get more sustain out of these on a Stat style floating trem. There is just a lot more direct metal on metal contact from string to bridge.
                  they are guitar strings. You strum them
                  I hated Fender strings for years but there is something about them on my current custom Stat that just works. They last a long time. I moved around a bit to different strings, including Slinkys and just had a lot more string breakage.
                  A bit pricey but it's Fender so...

                  Installed these on my American Special Mahogany Strat with the two point floating tremolo, LSR Roller Nut and locking tuning keys. I was amazed at the difference in tuning stability versus my previous brand of strings.
                  I have the bridge setup so that it is a Full Floating System, I can use the tremolo bar to raise as well as lower the pitch. I had been having trouble with it staying in tune. It would constantly go out of tune from just regular playing not even using the bar. After installing the Fender Bullets it stays in tune as well as my Floyd Rose Strat. I was amazed at what a difference these made. They also sound very good. I'll be using these on this guitar from now on.

                    I have use other strings on my American pro stratocaster but these beat others. I believe your best bet is to use the same manufacture as your guitar. These strings seem to work better with the two point tremblo bridge. when dive bombs or just a little use of trem strings will stay in tune but others strings will lose tune. I am learning more and more every day through research and good old trial and error. when you find something that works why go else where. just my two cents

                                I have only had these string on my Strat for two weeks..The strings hold its tune good , considering I did a poor job of putting the strings on. They finally settle and now they hold the tune good, They also feel good on the finder tips.
                                The strings have a rich, pure , and clean tone when you want them to. I also purchased a couple of sets of pure nickel strings and have not tried them out yet, however, I have a feeling that I will like them also.

If you have a Fender guitar, the Super Bullets will give you the best tone - it'll make those bad boys chime or growl...
