Living in SoCal my whole life I always used these because everyone uses them here. I always thought they were decent but slightly cheap strings because of the low price. I love them and still use them and go between sets of EB and Gibson Strings. But hearing Andertons do a comparison between a modded Squier and an MIM they considered EB strings on the Squier as an upgrade and higher quality than standard Daddario or Fenders that come stock. While I prefer EB strings to Daddario or Fender I dont believe they are higher quality. Gibson strings I feel are a bit nicer. But EBs have always been a cheap decent set that sounds great for the money. Never considered them high quality though. So whats the opinion on these....are they considered high quality in Europe or something? Or on the east coast lol? EDIT: This is my favriote set. Classic Rock N Roll Pure Nickle sets 9-42.
