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.

What should you expect from Stringjoy Signatures?

  1. Present, focused tone that brings out the true voice of your guitar and the details of your playing style.
  2. Modern, reconstructed gauges aimed at balancing the tension, tone, and feel of the strings across the fretboard.
  3. High-mass winding, leading to higher output, fuller tone, and improved longevity.

How do we make our strings?

  • Stringjoy Signatures electric guitar strings are made by a small team in Nashville, TN, USA, out of all-American materials: our top quality Nickel-Plated Steel, wound around a high-carbon hexagonal steel core wire.
  • The combination of better materials and more careful craftsmanship creates a more natural-sounding, longer lasting string, without the tone-deadening effects of string coatings.
  • We’re known for our quality control. Our strings are wound in small batches, and we use real human beings at every step of the process: the winding, the coiling, the packing, you name it.
  • Every string is inspected individually before it goes into your set. If anything is wrong with a string, from the way it’s secured around the ball end, through the entire winding, it doesn’t make the cut.

What does all that mean for you?

✓ Better tuning stability for the life of the string ✓ Longer string life and less breakage, when cared for properly ✓ Smoother, more balanced playability across the neck of the guitar
