5.0 out of 5 stars Thomastik strings!!!! November 13, 2011
I had a pair of standard thomastik jazz swing on order when a friend suggested that I put some of the GB's on instead. I have a Cort Yorktown Jazzbox and the strings took the overall sound up several notches!!! Get these!!! Don't fuss about the price because they last and they will transform your sound in an excellent way!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable December 27, 2011
Verified Purchase
These strings not only make my Ibanez PM35 sound beautiful, they make it easier to play. The tone of these nickel flatwounds delivers those woody, jazz tones that I hear from the best jazz boxes. And, they are so smooth to the touch. Other players picking up my guitar notice this immediately. The only strings that could potentially replace these GB112's in my book are the GB114s, but that would require an adjustment to the neck tensioner, so that'll have to wait. I recommend the 112's without hesitation. They are a great investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Out There August 4, 2011
Verified Purchase
If you're into traditional jazz sounds, these are probably the best flatwounds out there. At first I was skeptical with the lighter 6th string, but it's perfect - takes all the boominess out of the bass when playing chord melody a la Joe Pass, and zero string noise. I use these both on my Gibson L-5ces and my Benedetto Bambino.

The strings seem to last a long time, and never lose their "woodiness." I've left them on the L5 for 6 months or longer...

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive... but so worth it. December 30, 2013
By mazzas
Verified Purchase
These sound fantastic!!!

So maybe you won't put these on your $100 guitar... or maybe you should??? If you spent $4K on an ES-175 then clearly you've got the cash to string it up with these. Did I mention they sound fantastic??? But (just maybe) if you spent $100 on a garage sale jazz box then you've got $3900 left to buy a lifetime supply of these strings, which will surely make your bargain axe sound its best.

They don't just sound great, they also feel great. To be clear, they won't make you sound great if you don't already. But if you do, they surely won't hold you back. You can buy those $6 strings and always wonder if you should have tried these... or you can just pony up the cash to find out. If you're reading this, you know you want to. Do it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great strings, just not for me. May 19, 2013
As with many guitarists, I try different strings from time to time, and especially after buying a new guitar.

Having recently tried and been pleasantly surprised by the T-I Swing flatwould strings, which I liked quite a lot, I gave these go. I found the GBs to be different but of equal quality to the Swing set. Predictably, these flatwounds sounded better electrically than acoustically on my hollow body Eastman Pisano. I'll have to keep looking (most likely to round wound strings).
