  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Saw a classifieds ad for a cool guitar for a good price. However, it's apparently been without strings for 5 years. Would the neck be completely ruined by this if the truss rod hasn't been loosened?
  2. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    My first post here. Are there certain types of strings based on whether they're nylon, steel, brass etc. and the gauges, that make the sort of lead guitar tapping easier and others that make it near impossible? Or is it all in the technique? I'm trying to learn more lead techniques, more used...

    This is the perfect place to sell some Kiesels, right? Thought so. :agreed: :highfive: Great playing guitars. I just barely touch anything anymore other then my PGMs. And I'm just more into 6 strings now as my golden years approach. Up first is my Kiesel Aries AM8. Obviously the 8 string...

    I threw a set of these on my EBMM baritone the other day and I really like them: https://www.stringjoy.com/categories/strings/electric-guitar-strings/baritone-electric-guitar-strings/ I'm a big fan of big strings, but sometimes baritones are a little less fun when you get up higher on the...

    I played 9 gauge for a long time, but about 8 or 9 years ago I made the transition to 10 gauge and really haven't looked back. The issue I have right now is with one guitar. I have an Ibanez 7 string with one of those zero edge trems, where there's two large permanent springs and two smaller...

    What's the consensus: where is the best place to buy a bunch (but not TOO many) of 9s and 10s for quick string changes without looting a full set of strings? Thanks.

    Best site to buy them from these days? I used to use Juststrings but it seems that the lightest they do in singles now is 024. Spring is coming and I need a bunch of single 10/11s for the annual Fiddle Refresh.

    A buddy who no longer plays gave me his leftover strings he bought a long time ago. In the pile is a set of Ernie Ball Regular Slinky .10s and a set of DR "Pure Blues" .10s. I've been using D'Addario XL .9s since the mid 90s and love them, but I'm thinking I want to put some .10s on my 97 540SQM...

    ... Anyone tried them? (Yeah, i know who's behind that. Just curious about the strings)
  12. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Since Im getting back into the Metal guitar scene Id like to hear some opinions from fellow Metals Heads on what kind of strings they are using. I think the nickel wound sound the best but thats just me. I just use standard tuning so Ernie Ball Super Slinky aer my go to strings. My tuning -...

    Went to change strings and my pack of strings did not have a b string. It was my last pack of electric strings. It's over a 30 min drive to anywhere I can buy single strings. Curse you Dean Markley That is all

    Hi, My first post here. I'm trying dropping down to B standard tuning and I'm a bit stuck as to which string gauge to use. I play an LTD EC401 and I've just tried Ernie Ball 11-54 which are a bit too loose. Without me wasting more money I don't really have, does anyone play in this tuning...

    Apologies if this has been posted already or if it is old news but I saw various things about these in amongst the NAMM news headlines and thought I'd check them out. I know there are quite a few Elixir fans here (myself included), they sound interesting. By the sounds of it from the blurb I'm...

    Hello, guys! I'm looking for a Camo Battleworn set. Preferably Aftermaths. They will ship to my father's house on Lillington, NC. So no international shipping. Thanks, Frank.

    So I just bought a nice Jackson (25.5 scale lenght) guitar, and when buying strings, I decided to go for 10 gauge instead of the usual 9's. BIG MISTAKE! I tried 10's once before on a strat, but apparently I forgot how much I hated them... Which is weird because I am fine with the Ernie ball...

    Got these, borrowed my singer's guitar because I like the strings on my acoustic. I find the strings sound pretty good. I normally use elixirs on my acoustics, but these arent bad for non coated. Sorry I didnt play any thrash.
