    My string odyssey has brought me to standardize on Chromes 45-100. Problem is, I've spent way too much on strings lately to justify buying more. So fellow string GASers, I offer you this bargin:

    You get:

    GHS Precision Flats: Long+ Medium 45-105
    D'Addario Tapewounds: Long Scale 50-105
    D'Addario Chromes: Long Scale 50-105

    $18 each shipped. $40 for all shipped

    That is a retail value of over $70 if you were to buy these new from the cheapest online sources.

    Condition:
    - All strings have been strung thru body on a Fender Am Std Precision. Yes, there is a kink from going through body.
    - All have plenty of wraps
    - All have less than 8 hours of play time and none have left my studio.
    - All were simply used for testing and not heavily played

    This is a great/cheap way to try some strings.

    Would you consider selling then separately? Never tried flats before, so I wanna grab one just to try out

    If you have the option of going top load on your bridge I'll swap you a nicely broken in set of chromes .45-.100 for your GHS flats. Not really interested in the other stuff.

    No thanks. I'm looking to break in another set from the beginning.

    I guess if you like that twangy new chromes kind of sound. Personally I think they sound better the more used they are, But thats just me.

    Yeah - I don't love it, but I'm actually doing a little string recording experiment that requires fresh strings.

    For the record, I would still consider all of these ones for sale in the fresh category.

    If you don't already have your set of 45-100 Chromes, I have a very lightly used set that was on my Precision bass for about 3 weeks. Any interest in a trade for that set of tapes?
