Nice tweener gage for full sized Gretsch. 11's are typical but you can use these for easier bends more fluid playing without completely sacrificing the benefits of the higher gage you should be using on this type of guitar
I use 10.5-48 for all my guitars tuned half a step down. There aren't many strings to choose from in this size, but these are the best I've used. They feel smooth, have a punchy sound, and I have yet to break one - even after multiple detune/re-tunes. Amazing strings.
Curt Mangan 10.5-48 nickel wound
Been using Mangan products for a couple of years now, and I’ve been totally satisfied with their performance, and with the speed at which orders are shipped. Thank you!
6 pack 10.5 -48 electric
Great company, great strings ,great deal. These are my favorite strings and I won't buy any others anymore.!
Fantastic Strings--Superb Quality
These are the best nickel-wound strings I've ever played, by a wide margin. They sound and feel superior, a great combination of warmth and clarity, and are a pleasure to play. Also, it's not easy to find 10.5 gauge strings and these feel absolutely perfect on my Grosh ElectraJets, which are so easy to play that 10 gauge strings feel too soft for me, while 10.5 gauge is just right. They might cost more than other brands but they are absolutely worth it.
Nickel Wound 10.5-48's
Really like the feel of this gauge string. Had been using 11's for some time, but thought I would give these a try. Nice compromise between 10's and 11's and just the right feel! Like the short break in time and they hold their tuning very well. Will be a long time customer!!!
The best nickel-wound strings, period.
I use these on a 60's Classic Player Strat. The first time I put them on, a guitar-playing friend came up to me after church and said the guitar sounded awesome - this is notable because he hears that guitar every week! Good job, Curt Mangan. Sometimes I experiment with other strings, just to see how they affect my Strat. I've gone through a dozen different kinds of string, from big and small manufacturers. None come close to the sound and longevity of Curt Mangan.
