without a doubt, the best electric guitar strings available

By chuck d

As an active musician that plays many instruments, primarily electric guitar ATM, and as a sound engineer, Gibson vintage reissue string are flat-out the best strings I have EVER worked with concerning electric guitars.

Not for me for fingerpicking on my Oscar Schmidt OE 30

By ecrusier

from Kentucky

Comments about Gibson VR10 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

The strings my Oscar Schmidt OE 30 came with sound better than these or. I'm still looking for that perfect set of strings with clean crisp highs and mellow lows while that blend together and don't sound like I 'm picking in a barrel.

They are better

By Spector

from Wazzu

Comments about Gibson VR10 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

I think this is the first set of strings that I've bought that have made a difference in the tone of my guitar, aside from the differences you would expect from installing a new set of strings. These seem to have a warmer sound a buttery feel to them, I don't really know how to explain it but they just seem better quality than most others. Other string just seem like hunks of scrap metal now. I purchased the 11-50 set and have had them for about a week. I'm not sure if it's just me, but it seems like they are already starting to wear out a little, not really holding their tune. So I'm not really sure about the longevity of the strings, but I haven't had any breakage problems. I plan to stick with these strings for a long time and I do recommend them, they do seem to have a warmer sound suited more for blues or classic rock than newer metal stuff.

Good tone/No strength

By Dave Healey

from Pittsfield, MA

Comments about Gibson VR10 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

I bought and installed a set of re-issue 10's. Over 36 yrs experience of playing, I've never had a 10 gauge string break while stretching.This one did, I was a little surprised. So instead of having a perfectly balanced set of Gibsons now I have a D'Addario high "E" in place.I noticed that the Gibsons and Fast Fret do not co-exist well. The Fast Fret has a tendency to somewhat mute the Gibsons but not the D'Addario.Aside from all that, they're an ok string.

Great strings

By Stratocrastic

from So. Cal

Comments about Gibson VR10 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings - Light:

A friend turned me on to these and said I'd be amazed. He was right. I swallowed a little pride and put them on my Fender. Great tone, long life, and I haven't broken one yet.
