Afraid of 11's? Try these.
November 9, 2019
As a working guitarist of many years, I have had the opportunity to try many different brands and gauges of strings.

A friend who owns a music store in South Carolina told me about these and i tried them on a Tele and a 335. In both cases, I was thoroughly pleased.

Why? First of all, they give the tone of 11's - a little fatter and truer than 10's. BUT, they bend as easily as 10's. I play jazz and blues primarily so my blues guitars are outfitted ONLY with GHS 10.5's. Also, they stop stretching sooner than that "D" brand. So, you can actually re-string an hour before the gig if you have to.

Damned fine strings all the way around.
ProsExcellent tone. Comfortable. Well packaged. Reasonable cost.
ConsNothing I can think of!

Great Strings

Been a GHS Boomer guy for 20 years running. Always find them reliable and they sound great. Played .11s for years and years and while they sound amazing and last forever, there were other things I wanted to do as a player that facilitated the move to a lighter gauge, and plus as B.B. King told Billy Gibbons when he found out how heavy his strings were, "Why you working so hard?" I still find .10s a little too light to get used to and the 10 1/2s strike a good balance between the power and tautness of .11s and the elasticity of .10s. Each players preferences are subjective, but currently these are the perfect for me.

Great on my Les Paul. Slinky and very playable without sacrificing sustain and tone.

I tried these to replace 11's that are hard on the old hands and neck of the guitar. They sound like 11s with less stress! Always bright and snappy! They really bring my TS-808 to life, unlike other strings!

These strings are perfect for me, and you'll never find them anywhere. I snap 10s constantly (on Les Pauls), and these solved that problem nicely. Now I'm used to the way they feel and bend...perfect gauge!

Nice strings, but I wish the Carlos Santana version of these strings were available. Much better for a more like thicker jazzier tone that I'm looking for.

Feel like 10s sound like 11s. Bends feel like 11 and have that signature GHS sound. GHS IMO have a raw high output sound. A very good standard for all elec. Guitar strings.

These are perfect for me, and NO ONE else has them. I used to break 10's constantly. The 10.5's give my Les Paul the perfect feel, and ended my problems of breaking strings. Just Strings' service is prompt, accurate, and has been flawless over the past couple of years since I started ordering from them. And the price is great too!

These really are perfect for Gibson instruments. I've been searching for 6 months for the right tension of strings for my ES-135, and have finally found it with these.
