  1. Hey, I just got all the money I need. On Sunday I'm going up to Guitar Center to get my amp and such.

    One thing, I need new strings. I have a 4 string Ibanez. You guys have given me good advice in the past, what strings do you recommend (they have to be on musicians friend)? I'd like them to cost no more than $20.

    Thank you
     
  2. Good strings under 20 Benjamins are hard to find nowdays. Decent strings are 25-30

    Guitar Center has Rotosound strings, and DR's which are both nice strings, DR's i think are cheaper. You could bargain down to $21 maybe. Just say, ohh they're $24 all I have is $21, that's worked for me.

    Dude, a Benny is a $100. What you just said is good strings cosy $2500-$3000.

    You're thinking about Washingtons.

    EB Slinkies are pretty good strings for not much money. I used them for years and enjoyed them immensely.
