Vintage Choice Strings graphic.

Introducing ThroBak Vintage Choice™ Elgin Series™ Electric and Acoustic guitar strings. ThroBak Vintage Choice™ guitar strings are custom made just 20 minutes down the road from ThroBak by a small two man machine shop with a 45 plus year history of making only the finest precision string winding machines and custom musical instrument strings for select customers. When we discovered that this "off the radar" machine shop designed the original late 60's string machines for the now closed historic Elgin IL plant, we knew they were just the people with the know-how to produce the best possible traditional round and hex core Electric and Acoustic guitar strings that we were looking for. Enjoy the longevity and tuning stability that only comes from a premium guitar strings. Always choose ThrōBak Vintage Choice™ guitar strings.

Our best Pure Nickel strings with a round core.

The classic round wound pure Nickel tone you know from early Rock and Electric Blues. When we say pure Nickel strings we mean it. Although the pure Nickel wire raises our cost by more than 60% over Nickel plated steel, pure Nickel is the only way to produce the tone, feel and response of classic pure Nickel strings. Pure Nickel strings emphasize the fundamental of the picked note. Combined with a classic round core, pure Nickel electric guitar strings have a round, clear tone with a warm edge. Made in U.S.A. using only the finest U.S.A. wire.

Are these the best Electric Guitar Strings out there - well we think so - but try some for yourself and you be the judge! 100% USA made with only the finest USA made wire.
