    I have some GAWD awful strings that came on my used Ibanez 305DX. Id like to know what they are so I don't ever buy them by mistake. They are so bendy I can hardly play on them. I like a higher tension to my strings because when I get real into a groove and im playing finger style I play HARD. These strings are nearly allowing me to use them as a long bow.

    Very shiny, large gauged strings

    Extremely bendy. I can use my pinky and push them down a a half an inch easy.

    Round Wound

    Black string wound around both bridhe and head areas of the strings

    gold colored bead end
