Gibson Vintage Reissue Strings

So I went out on a limb the other day and picked up a pack of Gibson Vintage Reissue Strings in 10's, even though they cost a good 40% more than the average pack of strings. The guy at Guitar Center said they were easily worth it due to their incredible sound. I was a little skeptical at first, but since I have a Gibson Les Paul studio, I know how solid the company is. Anyway though, long story short, they play brilliantly on my guitar, and sound much better through my Vox amp compared to steel wound strings. All in all, I would give them a 9 out of 10 if I was to rate them. It was definitely a worthwhile purchase.

  17. Hmm, I'll have to try them out. I currently use Ernie Ball, which don't sound too bad, but Gibson Strings on my Gibson guitar? Worth a shot...

  18. I haven't made any changes to my strings other than the thickness of the string. Maybe I'll try something like these next time.
