    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

    Good luck with that. Could just be some cheap chinese made junk.

    What they are NOT:
    Ernie Ball
    GHS Boomers or Progressives
