Incredible Value

Not a better string on the planet for the $.$$. I’ve used GHS exclusively for the last 20+ years (have played guitar for 50 years) and have never had any issues. I own 15 guitars and they are all set up by me to my feel and specs. This includes 4 with Floyd Rose bridges. I can pick any one of them up and know what I’m getting in feel and tone. They also seem to last longer than others when using a cloth and string dressing after playing. I can attest to the fact that I am sold on GHS strings.
ProsPrice Feel Longevity Stays in tune after bending or tremolo use Consistent in manufacturing-each pack is the same quality string
ConsI really have nothing bad to say about them

GHS Strings

I've been using GHS strings for over 10 years, matter of fact they use to make a custom set for me that I used at that time. There is no better string to me ( I ran a music store for years and have tried them all ). I still use 9's on all 5 of my guitars. I would say what the worst set of strings are but i'm not going to slam anyone.

I don't know what planet what's his face in the other review is from, but I have been using these strings exclusively for years and really like them. They are NOT buzzy, they have wonderful tone, they settle in quickly, and they last a long time. $16.00 for a 6-pack is a pittance, and you can't go wrong here.

They are really buzzy until half dead.

I had bought GHS years ago, & they were comparable with my usual brand. These required me to raise my action, or just not use them at all. The cheap imported throw away strings I use for intonation, tremolo set up, fret work, saddle notching, & nut filing work better than these for me. By the time these settle down they are dead. They work slightly better on 25.5" scale, & are horrible on 24.625 or shorter, even in .010 gauge. They do not stretch in as much as other brands.
