    Just checked in a usual on-line string purchasing source and their strings are more expensive than local retail anymore!

    What online sources are being used for strings purchases?

    Also question about Fender Bullet strings: Seems they have 'standard,' 250 and 350 models with bullet ends. Plus, they're all nickel plated as well. Which set would be standard for a CS strat?

    Thanks

    Once, or twice a year I buy D'Addario's at GC for $30/box of 10. I usually buy 3 boxes. I also buy GHS for $20/box for student's guitars - I can charge less for them and save the student a few bucks

    Musican's Friend, yesterday bought my favorite strings for Tele.

    Gibson Vintage Reissue VR10 3-pack for 14.99 plus shipping

    Got three 3-packs and $5.95/shp. quite a deal for Gibson's! Comes to $5.66/pack

    Used to buy from MF all the time, better prices and fresher strings. Then they started screwing up left and right. I'll never go back unless they apologize and at this point give me a free Gibson or a year of free everything or something.
    I'm now happy with Just Strings and Big City String Co., even though they cost a little more.
    I'll have to check some of these others.

    GC or MF in the 10-pack. Just easier :)
