yeah they have colored strings. I've only seen pink and yellow, made by D'Addario. They cost as much as regular strings would (from $7.50 to $10 CND). i dunno if they're any good, but im thinking of buying the yellow ones, cuz my guitar is gold.

I've never used a different brand than D'Addario, so I wouldn't know. I shall always remain faithful to D'Addario. just so I can save points to get cool D'Addario ****

What's the whole point of colored strings? If you suck they're not gonna make you play any better.

just to tell you, its kills your tone on your guitar. not alot of people know this , but alot of your guitar tone itself comes from its strings, and those colored strings kill tone in everyway.

I use Ernie Ball Slinkies, but I'm interested about these coloured strings, I have never seen any, and I bet they look ace! (yes, yes, YES! I know about tone, it's important, blah, blah ,blah).

Do they sound crappy?

I have blue ones, I absolutely love them. They're DR Extra Life Peacock Blue bass strings, and I can't really tell that big a difference in the tone.

No they dont have any effect on quality unless you paint them yourself or buy really low quality ones.

Well obviously youve never used them because i have a pink set of DR's on my guitar right now and they sound way better than D'Adarrios which is what i usually get. The harmonics j/ fly off the neck like they were nothing and they supposidly last longer because there coated as well.
