Gabriel Tenorio round core strings fitting notes

Due to the design differences and handmade nature of Gabriel Tenorio strings, if you are new to using them there are sometimes a few concerns prior to fitting. I now always provide a brief fitting notes summery in your parcel with every set, and of course I'm always here to help with any questions you have. But don't worry, hopefully this blog article will help when the time comes to try them out! It may also help continued users of Gts.co strings too, so I'll leave this article live on the blog for future reference too.

The most common question we get asked from players interested in trying Gts.co strings is, How come these sets are more expensive than others out there? It is a very fair question, especially in a guitar world where there is a lot of 'mystique' thrown around about the quest for great guitar tone, rather than nice details and firm facts. So I hope this blog post today will help with this! There's no magic here, just quality and a lifetime's knowledge. So let's dive in.

Vintage Guitar Feature - Ben's 'Birth Year' Prized Jazzmaster

In chatting to a few players and fellow gear heads like myself over the years, the idea of owning 'birth year' guitars has cropped up a few times. Finding a guitar made the same year as yourself has a pretty cool appeal, especially if it's still affordable to do so (Sorry to those born in 1958/59!! Not so cheap for yourselves!). But for friend and customer of ours, Ben, something cropped up for sale which simply had to come home with him.

If you have a guitar you're planning on modifying, chances are that it will be an import instrument. There's good reason for that, they offer great quality bang for buck resulting in a great base for tweaks here and there than perhaps a more premium, pricier American made equivalent would. Let's face it, not everyone who's just spend £1500+ on a USA made instrument wants to go at it replacing bridges or pickups, so the import market offers great scope for DIY tweaking.

Refining tone & feel, a string gauge at a time - Gabriel Tenorio String Co explained - Pt.2

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?
