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

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
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.
Cons:
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.
Other:
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.
Bottomline:
Good for some genres, or as backup strings in general. You will not be disappointed!
