Something most of us never even think about is the finishing wrap, which is a crucial part of having a sturdy string. Those of us that play offset guitars, though, have had to think about them at one point or another, with the reissue offset Fender vibrato anchor plate’s holes drilled lower, forcing strings to rub against the newer, rounder, higher screws beneath the strings. Most companies’ strings (and the string pictured is one that most companies are using for their plains) aren’t super sturdy back there, so the vibrato has a tendency to saw through them quickly. This is the main culprit of high e breakage on Jaguars and Jazzmasters. When I show you the ball end of @thegcs’ custom strings, you’ll immediately get why they’re superior in this regard! #guitar #custom #strings #guitarstrings #guadalupecustomstrings #handmade #la #losangeles #offsetguitars #jazzmaster #jaguar #fender #vibrato (at GUADALUPE CUSTOM STRINGS)

I want to thank @thegcs for winding the most dependable, soulful, consistent-feeling strings I’ve ever played. Not only did they bring the guitar to life the moment they were installed, but I also didn’t have to change strings once in the month + that I was here. That’s three weeks of rehearsals between 4-6 hours per day, then four performances a week plus warmup rehearsals and practicing on my own every day. Did they change in tone at all? Sure. They broke in a little after playing for a week straight, but at no point after that did I feel as though I was losing tone or snap, and the guitar always, always sounded as big and full and snarly as ever. Well fucking done, my friend. THANK YOU. Please go buy GUADALUPE CUSTOM STRINGS including my Jazzmaster 11-50 set with the long wrap. #strings #guitar #guadalupecustomstrings #losangeles #seattle #jazzmaster #offsetguitars #fender #fenderguitars #1960 #patpend #trem #vibrato #custom #guitarstrings #thegcs (at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar)

I’ve been waiting to post more about @thegcs until I really have the strings and intense workout, but weeks after having strings custom wound for me, I can tell you that they’re still going strong and haven’t lost any of what made them so exciting to begin with, from their pleasant tension to the loud, authoritative tone they bring to the tonal palette. Watch as Gabriel winds a string effortlessly… #guitar #custom #strings #Guadalupe #guitarstrings #losangeles #la #guadalupecustomstrings #winding #craftsman (at Guadalupe Custom Strings)
