Gibson J200 strings

Recommended Posts

When they were discontinuing these I bought some packs, just because.  Do people like them, dislike them, what Gibsons or types are they good for besides a J200?  I have a Guild Maple Jumbo they'd probably be good for, any other suggestions?

The J200 strings were essentially the same as the Masterbuilt Premiums, with the addition of silk windings near the ball ends. I've used them on SJs and J-45s, and still have a few sets around. They are fine for any guitar that responds well to PB strings.

Thanks!  I have a Southern Jumbo, maybe it will go on next

I put my last set I had on hand on my J200 about a month ago.  I like masterbuilts, and these are the same cept the silk wrap.

I have some masterbuilts right now on my taylor grand symphony,  they sound just fine on that one too.
