I've read that Ibanez ships their guitars off with D'Addario strings on them and I was just wondering if this goes for the low end models as well cause I have a Gio and Ifigured it had mediocre strings and I'm wondering if I have really been playing D'Addarios all along.

Does it matter? Strings are what.. $12 for a good set? It's peanuts compared to the price when you buy a guitar.

You are not understanding my point. I only want to know because I am about to buy some D'Addarios on guitarcenter.com and I am just curious if I have been playing D'Addarios all along, hence when my new D'Addarios arrive, I will not notice a difference. Get what I'm trying to say?

As a matter of fact, I doubt you read anything except the title. Tell me I'm wrong...

Are the ball ends of your strings different colours? As far as I know daddario are the only strings that do that because they package all the strings in the same packet.
#6
Just take a look at the ball-end of the strings. If I'm not mistaken, D'Addarios usually have multi-colored ball-ends.

^ True, But I'm pretty sure I had D'addarios with all gold ends, but they may not have been D'addarios.

d'addario comes with colored ends, they wont make them differently because they will be stock on a guitar.

and on trem guitars, they are cut off anyways, so yea. . .

but how low end is low end? if it was under 300 USD, i dont think they were d'addario strings.

You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!

I think I got everything but "and I'm wondering if I have really been playing D'Addarios all along." My browser crashed, I thought I'd gotten all of it when I brought it back up. My bad, sir.

You can't compare strings that possibly have been on a guitar forever in stock, transit, etc to a set of new strings.

And yes, they are D'Addarios.

He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

You'll notice the difference between ANY new strings and your old ones, because they'll be new. However, you aren't going to see any difference between a new set of D'adarrios, a new set of Ernie Balls, a new set of GHS etc.
