In short these strings are really bad. IMO. I don't like the sound at all. I have just bought my first guitar, as you may have guessed an Ibanez GSR200. I had made the decision as soon as it arrived to get it set up professionally. (highly recommended) But as with any new baby I just had to hold her for a bit! Out of the box it was bad. So much fret buzz. After the pro setup. Its an absolute pleasure to play! But the strings really let the guitar down. Shame on you Ibanez, for all the wonders you turn out you couldnt just put some nice strings on your starter guitars. In short. I'm looking for some new strings, but the walls of strings in the guitar shops make me scratch my head! Can anyone recommend some good strings for me? I'm looking for a nice low punchy sound. The factory ones are very very 'pingy' Going to be playing a lot of classic rock, but also modern rock as well. Anyone experimented with different strings on the GSR200? Thanks guys, appreciate any help you can give me!
