The closest to the original S483 strings you’ll find.
October 4, 2019
For those searching for a string set similar to the original Rickenbacker/Maxima S483 strings, the search is over. By using a round core and gauges similar to the S483’s, these strings are the closest I’ve found in 30 years. They are a bit darker in tone, but that’s certainly acceptable and the ‘65 and ‘67 Rickenbacker 12s I’ve got them on sound and play fantastic. (This review is specific to the 10-39 set)
ProsGreat feel, lower tension, and great tone.
ConsCan sound a little unbalanced at first but they do even out over time. A friend of mine got a dead string but customer service took care of him so maybe that should go on the ?Pros? list :-)
