I bought this 4-string set of DR Black Beauty strings about a year ago and finally got around to trying them. I strung up my Stingray with them and decided I don't like them. I've played them around the house for maybe an hour total. I cut the strings G string with enough length to put onto a Fender. I forget what I paid for them but I seem to remember paying around $40 at Manny's in NYC. How 'bout $25 through paypal for the set, shipped to you?
