• The world’s first strings to offer these features on standard electric guitars:
    • – Equal force applied means equal pitch bend on five lowest strings
    • – Chords bend in parallel on the four lowest strings
    • – Intonation equal on four lowest strings
    • – Great tone and sustain with more consistency across strings
