OVERVIEW

Don't pay too much for strings!

Gauge .017, Plain Steel - Acoustic or Electric

These are the same guitar strings Rogue uses in prepackaged retail sets. What's the difference? We package 12 strings of the same gauge in airtight vinyl bags with a packet of silica gel to protect against unwanted moisture, so they last longer than typical string sets. We also pack these bulk strings in big, loose coils to avoid compressing or stretching the windings, so they sound better than tightly coiled strings. Rogue Strings are made for us exclusively by a famous manufacturer, employing the finest materials and the latest manufacturing methods.

FEATURES

Since I own several instruments, I need a lot of extra strings. These are a great buy and I use them mainly for spares/backups. Frankly, I have used and still do use several different brands of single strings. Currently, I have a few acoustics strung with these strings 1st - 3rd and they have worked well ifor live performance. My Carvin Bolt has a set of 8-38, all Rogue singles on it, and so far they have held up well over a year just playing around the house. Like most strings, change them often and they won't break, stretch and give you headaches. I keep them by gauge in air-tight, zip-lock freezer bags; they will last a long time.

2 things I don't like about paying 12 strings predominately. Both apply to the 5th String ( "G" octave ). It places the highest note into the middle of the instrument and .008's break far too easily.
For my acoustics I buy .023's ( Martin XL ) and I have just completed a build on an electric which will require .017's
I have already stolen one from one my 6 set to set up the guitar and I am pleased with the results. I am expecting these to work out just fine.

        Comments about Rogue P17 Bulk 12 Pack 017 Plain Steel Electric Guitar Strings:

        These come in bulk. I keep the envelopes that strings come in (when bought in a set) and replenish them with the bulk strings. I can't hear or see any difference between these and the expensive ones. I have been using them since 1996. If you play a lot buy these, or end up with a lot of unused strings.
