  1. Lets hear it....what string do you like the most,and why?


    (another stupid thread by:)


    -Jon:oops:


    P.S - I personally like the A string, because it has that nice tone,and on high frets...it has a nice dense sound,but not drowned out...

    the A, D, and G, up around the 8th fret. I can't choose only one.

    If I solo the bridge pickup, and boost bass and low mids, the E, A, and D way up at fret 17+ sound really uprighty.... but the cutaway and the heel make it hard to actually play that high.

    Silly String - because it's silly like this thread...

    ...now be careful, if this really is a discussion about bass strings some goofy mod might send it off to the strings forum - and I think it might be a duplicate thread over there. :eek: so back on to the subject, I also like string cheese and I'm quite fond of my shoe strings(they're quite handy for keepin' my shoes on)... not much of a fan of kite string...

    G and D up past the 12 frets are my favorite, especially with chords...
