Single Signature Nickel & Plain Steel Electric Guitar Strings
Single strings ship free in the USA with any order over $20
Single strings are always a good idea. Nothing wrong with having a few extra of that string that always seems to break on you — just in case. Even better, grab singles in a few gauges that are slightly different than the set you’re getting, that way you can try a few variations and see what you like best.
Choose your gauge, enter your quantity, and then click add to cart. If you need more than one gauge, just come back to this page to add the others.
Wondering what P and W stand for? String length questions? Click to expand...
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.
To put it simply, fresh strings, made with quality materials and genuine care just sound and play better.
- Stringjoy guitar strings are made by a small team in the USA, out of all American materials: top quality nickel alloy, hand wound around a high carbon 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 do a higher quality guitar strings 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
