11's win on a Jazzmaster


It was my first time buying 11's for my vintage Jazzmaster, and the guys at Sam Ash really helped me choose a great pair! The feel, sound, and quality are unlike another other strings I've tried! They're great for D standard tuning!



Great choice for down tuning, and beginner friendly


I asked for some heavier strings that are still beginner friendly, was directed to these, I've thoroughly joyed them



Great strings


These strings are warm and expressive. Love them!
