Artist Series Electric Guitar
Artist Series GT* Rounds Electric Guitar Strings feature a signature colored silk wrap at the twist. Recommended for LongTwist sets for guitars outfitted with OffSet tremolo systems, Bigsbys, Tuneomatic bridge system, or a Tailpiece. The colored silk wrap provides an extra level of strength and protection to the string especially when wrapping back around a tuneomatic or a Bigsby. The colored silk also can help to curb those pesky weird harmonics between tailpieces and bridges. Choose your gauge and from a selection of colored silk thread. Note: Artist Series sets are sold in boxes of 4, please allow up to 15 days for fabrication.
Steel RoundCore, Nickeled Steel wrap. Handmade, custom wound for a better fit. We offer a longer twist for all types of guitars, except of course top loading Tele style bridges.
Choose your gauge and let us know what type of guitar and bridge type you have. For example: do you play a telecaster? top loader or through the body? or bigsby? This information is valuable in making the appropriate string lengths for your setup.
Top Loading Tele is an option for guitars with Tele or half Tele type bridges where the strings enter through the ferrules at the rear of the bridge plate.
If you are using a Strat or Tele type guitar where the strings go through the body, use the Through Body option.
Tele, Strat, Jazzmaster style tend to have 25.5" scale length
Gibsons and Gretsch type guitars range from 24.5-24.75" scale lengths
Jaguar style guitars have a 24" scale length
I recommend 11-50 for Jazzmasters and Jaguars, 11-52 for Gretsches, 10s or 12s for Top Loading Tele's
