    Jazz light strings are awsome

    Just put them on a Squire Strat; very bright tone even on a low treble setting,has that jazzy vibe feel on the neck , had to a just the action because that c shaped neck on the Squire Stratford is used to 0.10 Guage (E) string , the Jazz lights are 0.12 so I lowered the action on the bridge; sounds real jazzy !

    Jazz? Sure, but...

    I adore these strings. And I adore Jazz. But for the most part, I have been bashing these things in punk rock and rock and roll outfits. The wound third actually stays in tune. Sustain is awesome, and the brightness lasts for a good long while. Jazz? Yes! But these things rule for rock rhythm guitar.

    Godin Ultra A6 Stock Strings

    Bright and holds its tone for a long time. Excellent quality and packaging. These come stock on the Ultra A6 because they have a wound 3rd (required to maintain intonation) and are nickel which work with the A6's humbucker pickup (phosphor bronze will not).

    Ball End Collapse

    Have used these strings for a long time. Last year or so I've noticed them breaking a lot on a guitar I haven't been using as often. After being on the Gtr 1 month I was finding multiple strings where the loop around the ball end had let go due to crushed ball ends. Last time there were 3 strings that did this which has caused the truss rod in my neck to seize due to the fact that there was no counter pressure from the strings pulling against it. The 1st 2 times I blamed it on myself for not playing my jazz box more often. The 3rd time I knew something was up having just restrung and gigged with the guitar a month earlier. Upon further inspection I found that D'addario has been cutting corners with the thickness of their ball ends. Maybe the material as well. Not too mention the tightness of the loop looks week as well. I will never buy anything from D'addario ever again. The good news is that I have searched out a better string and feel ashamed as a professional musician that I didn't do this 20 years ago. Bad news is that I have a frozen truss rod in one of my irreplaceable McKerrihan arch tops. Hopefully with a quality set of strings that don't bust after 4 weeks it will come back.
