    SOME OF YOU PROBABLY KNOW THIS BUT I'LL SHARE ANYWAY. ERNIE BALL HAS DISCONTINUED THE 5150 LINE OF STRINGS AND YOU CAN'T GET THEM ANYMORE AS FAR AS I KNOW. THEESE ARE ALL I USE AND HAVE HAD 4 CASES ON ORDER FOR 3 MONTHS.WELL I DUG AROUND FOR A REPLACEMENT AND FOUND THAT FENDER MAKES AN IDENTICAL STRING CALED 150XL Original Pure Nickel Extra Light Ball End Electric Guitar Strings. I GOT 2 CASES OF THEM AND THEY ARE THE SAME. JUST THOUGHT I'D PASS THIS ALONG. MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL.

    You should be able to find some GHS Nickel Rockers if you snoop around.

    Dude, the 150XLs are what Ed used to use way back in the day. Those are the ones he would solder the wrappings on the ends to reinforce them. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] Just goes to show, you wait long enough then something will come back in style

    Please let us now how the Fender's compare to the 5150's. I was also upset when I heard they were discontinuing, those are the only strings I ever use on my Wolfgang.

    I AM VERY PLEASED WITH THE FENDERS THEY HOLD UP AND SOUND AS GOOD AS THE 5150'S IF NOT BETTER AND ARE ABOUT A 1.50 CHEAPER THAN THE 5150'S. I'M SOLD ON THEM AND JUST TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE I WENT AHEAD AND BOUGHT 4 CASES OF THEM. NOT GONNA GET CAUGHT WITHOUT THEM AGAIN LIKE I DID WITH THE 5150'S I WAS DOWN TO MY LAST 5 PACKS WHEN THEY QUIT MAKING THEM. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
    BY THE WAY HEY ROL YOU STILL INTERESTED IN THAT WOLFGANG QUILT I GOT WE MIGHT DO SOMETRADING IF YOUR INTERESTED.

    I'm guessing the Peavey Wolfgang branded strings. I tried a set and I didn't really like them. They're 9-42. I prefer 9-40 pure nickels like the 5150's on my Wolfgang and 10-38's on my strat. The Wolfgang strings didn't do anything for me.

    I've always used Ernie Ball Nickel Super Slinky Pink Electric Guitar Strings Gauges 9-11-16-24w-32-42.

    I've used these ever since I began playing (23 years) because the guy I learned from used them and he was a huge EVH fan.

    How do the Fenders compare?
