  • Anyone using the GFS guitar strings?

    Just curious. They're cheap.

    Last year I bought an Xaviere guitar from Guitar Fetish and the first thing I did was to change strings.

    Love the guitar but not the GFS strings

      I can't vouch for those but I use these regularly:  http://www.musiciansfriend.com/accessories/musicians-gear-electric-9-nickel-plated-steel-guitar-strings

      They're cheap -er and I can't tell much of a difference btn them and my favorite Strings DR Tites.  As good or better than Ernie Ball IMO.

        I've bought a ton of strings from GFS in the past few years. They work fine for me.

      No. I wouldn't waste my time either.

        No telling who makes those strings in China. I have tried cheap strings from Thomann (Harley benton) and they were absolutely horrible. Strings are too important and cheap to compromise.

      I tried them.  I wasn't a fan, they felt kind of weird to me.

        I've used the .11's for years. Good strings. Trying Elixir next. They're supposed to hold up well.
