What do the P’s and W’s mean?
All gauges lighter than .018 are plain steel, all heavier than .026 are nickel wound.
On gauges where we overlap, a “p” signifies plain steel, a “w” signifies a wound string.
So, if you see a .020w, that’s a wound string. A .020p is a plain string. If it doesn’t have either letter we only offer it as a wound string (if it’s heavier than .026) or a plain steel string (if it’s lighter than .018). Got it? Good.
How long are your strings?
All our strings are at least 41″ from ball-end to tip. They’ll fit extended range and baritone guitars no problem.
Gauges heavier than .062 have a slight taper at 37″ from the ball end, and can also be unwound to fit into smaller tuning pegs, with a pair of needlenose pliers. If you’re having to do that often, it’s better to have a tech file out your tuning peg.
