Gabriel Tenorio String Co. - Nickel Steel - JM46 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 lighter gauge Jazzmaster string heaven! The JM46 is based upon the 10-46 set but are the diameters everyone is used to, but with a finer wrapped D and more tension in the cores. Tasty! The difference here is that the JM46s also feature the 'trem twists' specifically designed for 25.5" scale Jazzmasters, and for their floating trem systems.
Gabriel's strings are now available with three 'twists', STD, SHORT & TREM.
The twist at the ball end is extremely crucial to the performance of the string. Gabriel has adapted longer and hardware appropriate twists to his matrix of formulations.
This set of Nickel Steel JM46s is spec'd with TREM Twist - This is the important part to note prior to order. These are for guitars outfitted with Jazzmaster style tremolos (approx. 1.75” twist length)
This string set will NOT fit wraparound tailpieces, top loading bridges like Tele for example, or through body bridge guitars.
If you're not sure whether these will suit your guitar, please do get in touch and I'll do my best to help!
How they're made
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.
