Gabriel Tenorio String Co. - Nickel Steel - JM50 w/trem twists
Steel Round Core strings with nickeled Steel wrap. Handmade & custom wound for a better fit by Gabriel Tenorio in Los Angeles, USA.
This right here is Jazzmaster string heaven. This set of Nickel Steel strings are a 11-50 (11-14-18-30-40-50) gauge and is specifically designed for you Jazzmaster fans!
Designed by Gabriel Tenorio along side offset guitar specialists like Michael James Adams (Jazzmaster guru to those who are unfamiliar with the name), these strings suit the balance and feel of these unique guitars perfectly. First of all the 'Trem Twist' found at the ball end is perfectly suited for the Jazzmaster's floating trem,and they are the tightest, longest twists available in the string market. Why is it needed? Well it helps tuning stability and helps prevents breakages at the tailpiece ferrules renowned on Jazzmasters and Jaguars. The gauges were specifically designed to get more resonance & more pressure at the saddles. Gts.co highly recommend the 11-50 gauge being optimal for the Jazzmaster, but he has also developed a 'Super 10s' set for them which get the very best out of a 10s set for a JM which you'll find here on the website too.
This set features Trem twists for guitars outfitted with JM style floating tremolo systems and a scale length of 25.5".
These will also work great on other 25.5" scale length, or shorter like Gibson scale guitars that have trem systems like a bigsby perhaps or floating tailpieces, 'trem twists' work perfectly for this style.
How they're made?
Gabriel Tenorio has been hand winding strings for many years, training under the watchful eye of mentor and Guadalupe Custom Strings founder, Francisco Gonzalez. He developed on his knowledge learnt in those years and stepped into the world of electric and acoustic guitar, beginning his company soon afterwards offering a level of quality string seldom seen in the guitar world these days.
Each string in each and every set is hand wound by Gabriel Tenorio, in his workspace in LA, California. Each component of the string specially chosen over years of development for consistency, tone and reliability, from core, to ball end to wrap. These strings are hand wound, IE, Gabriel ultilises a string winding machine and individually guides the wrap and twist by hand, not a guided machine like others are, one by one around the central round core until the set is complete.
