CUSTOM BLENDED GUITAR STRINGS... READ ON FOR THE REST OF THE STORY ... ✌🏼 A small company in Nashville (Nash-Vegas) who happens to make some of the most BAD-A** guitar strings in the business reached out to me awhile back and wanted me to try their strings.
I agreed but I wanted them custom blended. ☮️ MEANING... I wanted the guages to be mixed and not like a normal "stock" set of strings off the shelf.
In other words, I wanted them as if you were to buy a few sets of strings and pull the exact guage changes you wanted at each string from each pack. When you buy strings off the shelf at your guitar shop, they are normally sized and guaged AS IS. Light, Medium, Heavy (and several other terms between but you dig, right?
An easier way to understand it for those not accustomed to what I'm saying... Imagine buying a medium guage on your high E string. Light on your B string. Heavy on your G & D string and X-Heavy on the A strings, and back to meduim on the LOW E.
*** NOT THE EXACT BLEND I DID ON MINE BUT YU GET THE IDEAD*** Sound crazy?
Doing this puts a different tension under your fingers and the slight variance in that tension, well, it just feels great - and the sound? Unreal!
You really have to hear it and feel it for yourself.
So... back to the NASHDUDES...✌🏼 These guys agreed to blend the strings irregularly for me as I requested.
When the strings arrived, I loaded up a PRS that was sent to me by a wonderfuI TRIBE MEMBER.
THE VERDICT: I absolutely loved them. The tones and sustain is killer.
I happen to come across this video of me testing them out a little. 🎸
I love how the low end rumbles like thunder and the tension of the G,B, & D strings add tones and FEEL that you just can't miss.
The B, G & D strings are where I mixed the guages away from the usual stock set of strings.
What do you think the tone?

Here's some golden love to help you beat the monday blues!
Mondays aren't really bad, if you know what you are doing, if you have a plan, maybe a checklist in place. I think it is one of the best days of the week. It's like a fucking engine that has the power to set you in motion and drive you through the whole week!
More power to you folks 🖖🏼
