    So, I have had two different Guitar Centers tell me that "DR removed Sunbeams from their stores." ***, why would DR do that? The only DR's I am seeing there now are Hi Beams, Fat Beams, Flats and a couple of different coated strings. I did not ask, but it seems Lo Riders are gone too. I don't buy them from GC often, but once in a while I need strings in a pinch and it was nice to know they had them.

    Still in production. I was at the DR factory a couple of weeks ago and saw them being wound myself. Photos and story coming soon!

    I was at my local Guitar Center last week. The string selection is very limited. After getting used to buying strings online, I have been spoiled by selection.

    Weird, my local GC seems to have stopped stocking Lo-Riders and Sunbeams as well, but the next closest store still has them. They seem to be carrying the DDTs in a 105-45 set now, which they never did before.

    That's crazy! These are my favorite rounds. Dumb move, GC.
