An update on Gabriel Tenorio Strings..

Demand has quite honestly been overwhelming in recent months for Mr Tenorio's hand wound strings, which is a testament to the quality of the strings along with the work spent establishing them over the past 2 years here in the UK and Europe. But it has meant we've had to quickly re-evaluate how to meet this huge spike in demand, so I wanted to update you all with where we're at!

Well, it's safe to say that the Squier 'Vintage Modified' Jazzmaster project guitar has fully stolen my heart. I've really enjoyed working on it, and making it into a truly great guitar. I'm hooked!

The offset hot topic, Bridges! Stay Trem, KTS, Mustang, Mastery & Buzz Stop all discussed!

When it comes to offsets, Jazzmasters & Jaguars in particular, one topic is almost always the top pick, their bridges. With forums and social media discussions seemingly full of tales of string jumping and buzzing woes, quick fixes and upgrade options, I wanted to compile my findings and experiences, and do so honestly. So this may become a handy reference point for those getting into these superb but often misunderstood guitars.

With our two part detailed look into Gts.co strings released throughout this week, what better way to round that up than with a chat with the man himself, Gabriel Tenorio.

With Part.1 of the blog series spotlighting Gabriel Tenorio Strings that we released earlier this week, you'll have a good idea now on why the twists are so important. One detail you may have noticed if you've browsed the store looking at gts.co, is the more refined gauge choices available. With half gauges, refined specs and names like 'Super 10s', it's understandably easy to be lost amongst the choice, but it's all very much within reason, stick with it.

Long Twist, short twist, what does it even mean?! - Gabriel Tenorio String Co explained - Pt.1

We all stroll into our local guitar stores every few weeks or so, have a browse around lusting after new gear and end up just grabbing a fresh set of strings whilst you're in there. We know the gauge we like, perhaps the brand too if it's something we're used to and off we go to the counter to part with our pennies and treat out beloved guitar to a freshen up. These guitar strings are ready for any guitar, straight off the peg making life a little simpler. But is this simpler way the best way?

The response from fellow 'Guitarists Anonymous' members about my trusty No.1 Strat blog post was incredible. Thanks to everyone for checking it out. I figured it'd be nice to follow it up with a spotlight on another of my guitars which lies close to my heart, one that is continually a fighter for that No.1 top spot. My 1995 Heritage H535.
