    I put these on my semi-hollow Heritage and on my T-51 Hamer Tele, both sound great with Gibbie re-issues.

        Comments about Gibson VR9 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings:

        I am setting up a Chinese Les Paul neck on a cheap thin body P-90 Les Paul body and stating with Gibson stings is a good place to begin as they have been making guitar work with their bridges and strings for decades. Switching to Ernie Balls right away won't work good as I have not used the guitar for enough time to be well satisfied with the intonation and bridge placement to be happy with how it tunes. Permanantly places bridges can be a real pain and someone else knowing a string set that is known to work is a good thing.

          Comments about Gibson VR9 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings:

          I thought that there would be a sacrifice in sound from other reviews, not that the reviews were bad, just that they mentioned a difference. There wasn't. I did my ol' VooDoo Child sound check... Good 2 Go!

            Good strings and on my second set. I give them a 4 star rating due to first set were rusted out of box. I played them like that. Second set didn't have rust. Used on Les Paul Custom Pro.

                    Comments about Gibson VR9 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings:

                    These strings feel the best under my fingers, and that is why I always come back to them. The VR9s are great on my 60th Anniversary Telecaster. They bend easier than the Fender 250Ls that came stock. I think they wear better than a lot of strings. I never break them. I've left them on for months out of sheer laziness and they still sound better than most strings. They do wear after a while, especially on these thinner sets, but they still don't break and they stay in tune. I've thought about pulling an EVH and boiling the wound strings because they really do keep their tone. I used to use the 10s on a Les Paul that I had and they were just as reliable.
