theGUITARaddict: Mega



Spent time with the LP CM yesterday. Gave it a re-string, Ernie Ball‘s Mega Slinky (10.5 – 48). This is my only Gibson equipped with a thicker than standard string gauge set & tuned down half step (hence the thicker gauge). Despite alluding to some heavy music applications, this one handles Abba & Erasure songs well. 

I’m not an Ernie Ball fan when it comes to strings, in fact, I rank this brand name the lowest in terms or reliability out of the package. EB strings are meant to be used immediately upon purchase, delay this & rust spots will start to appear. I was at Swee Lee last Saturday & purchased this set to try. I may not be a fan but it’s not excluded entirely from my considerations. I think I’m being fair here. Thanks to Swee Lee for bringing in oddball / niche gauge sets. You won’t find 10.5s easily in other stores.
