Strings for a Broadway


Recommended Posts

i was reading the resent post on jazz strings. what if you want to play blues solos. i just have ernie ball super slinky on my guitar now because the strings that came on the broadway were just way to hard to bend (g string bend for one step was damn near off the fretboard) but with the regular electric strings i dont get the sound i want. does any one have any suggestions of what strings would be best for me!!!

First, what were the stock strings?


If they were flatwounds, then maybe disregard this post, if they were regular electric strings,

try some lighter jazz flatwounds, not as hard to bend, but thick enough to get that tone.


(my 2 cents worth)
