Sometimes in March 2018, I started using D’Addario strings on my electric guitars per recommendations from two expert guitar technicians. Previously I have been exclusively using Ernie Ball Regular Slinky. It was the first brand of guitar strings that I used on my first electric guitar, a used Gibson SG that I purchased for $150 some years ago.
Personally I do not hear or feel major differences between D’Addario and Ernie Ball strings. All I care the most, the guitar is set-up properly to my likings.
For some reasons I have had three occasions when the EXL120 high E string keeps unravelling at the bridge.
I contacted my go-to guitar expert regarding the issue. He said this issue happened to 9-gauge string but not to 10-gauge ones. He recommend me to contact D’Addario.
