Good product! – D'Addario EXL120 Super Light Gauge Electric Guitar Nickel Wound (6-String Set) Reviews

I received these in the post without a scratch. I got all six strings, wrapped in a small bag (not individually). I put these onto my stratocaster a month or so after receiving. These are pretty inexpensive and cost about twice as much around here. Each string was in perfect condition.
These strings sounded a little duller than the ones I had on previous. If you play rock, this may not be a problem. For other styles, it could. They lasted me about 2-3 weeks each. These are the first nickel-wound strings I have used, so I do not know how long they should last.
These would be suitable for backup strings, in case of an emergency at a gig, or at home even. I might stock up on these soon. There are people saying these are fake, which they probably are, but that does not mean they're great value.
Good for some genres, or as backup strings in general. You will not be disappointed!
