Holiday season or not, not everyone's ready to drop big bucks on a new electric guitar or acoustic guitar, or even a nice guitar amp. But, chances are good that most guitarists have a few bucks to spare on a new set of electric or acoustic guitar strings to keep their beloved axe(s) playing fast and smooth.
Even if you recently swapped out your strings, having a spare set (or a few) is always good for piece of mind. After all, those high E strings don't care one bit if you're practicing in your bedroom or in the middle of your big solo spot onstage...
