These are THE ORIGINAL custom gauge string set for 3 string cigar box guitar, renamed as "Tight Top/Loose Low" to differentiate them from our new line of balanced tension strings. A slightly looser bottom string gives plenty of twang, and a heavier high string gives a nice resistance to the slide to help prevent bottoming out the slide against the frets. Top quality USA made strings, nickel wound on hexagonal steel core, suitable for electric or acoustic guitars.
Gauges 042, 032, 024 for G - D - G tuning - as fitted to Chickenbone John guitars.
You might be making your guitar from junk, but don't compromise on the strings - this is the very start of your sound.
