Stringjoy Signatures | Classic Light Gauge (10-46) Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings

Sometimes a classic is a classic for a reason. While we typically recommend players start with our Balanced Light 10-48 set, we know that 10-46 has been the standard for decades, and many players want to try out the quality of our strings in a familiar gauge first—and we’re cool with that.

Speaking of quality, it’s not just a marketing phrase here at Stringjoy, it’s a way of life. We live and breathe quality with every turn of wire, and it’s this obsessive attention to detail that makes our strings great. It’s not some trick or gimmick, or special unobtainium alloy wrap wire. We’ve found that making the best strings in the world simply comes down to getting a hundred small details exactly right.

We’re confident that once you try them, you’ll agree that all of those details add up to a truly remarkable finished product, and you won’t want to ever put anything else on your guitars.

Frequently asked questions

Typically, it takes 1-2 business days (M-F) to process your order, regardless of the shipping option selected at checkout. We run on a lean manufacturing model, so when you order strings directly from us, they were made fresh just for you. In rare cases we experience extremely high demand and it may take a few extra days for your order to ship. We ship Monday through Friday, excluding weekends and holidays. You will receive a confirmation e-mail with a tracking link once your order ships.

Almost certainly. We make our strings longer than just about any company to ensure that they will fit on all guitars. All plain steel strings are 43″, wound guitar strings are 46.5″ total with a 39.75″ winding length, and bass strings are 54″ total with a 48″ winding length (or 45″ for short and medium scale bass strings). Bass strings and guitar strings heavier than .060 have varying taper lengths, for full details please see “How long are your strings?” on our FAQs page.

Our goal is to make strings that sound fuller, feel smoother, and last longer than the other strings on the market. Having a slightly higher price-point enables us to be more selective with which materials make it into your set, and to afford the skilled staff that we need to craft strings that are a cut above the rest.

Yes, we make all our strings in our shop in Nashville, TN. We know that many brands do not, but we’ve never wanted to be like the rest of the string brands out there. It’s our mission to make the best strings in the world, and we couldn’t do that unless we could own and master every portion of the process ourselves. We obsess over every single detail of our strings, and we believe that once you install them, you’ll immediately be able to tell the difference a quality string makes.
