  • What buyers say about DAddario EJ16-3D Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings

    When I first received these, it took about four weeks for the shipping to be right, but it came nice and I didn't have any scratches or injuries. After I put the strings on my guitar, the store employee put them on my acoustic guitar.

    I picked it up the other day and it was in perfect condition and stayed that way for three hours. The Ds have been using it for three years now and I have had to tune it at least three times.

    I have 3 custom handmade acoustics that were built for me by 3 different companies. The only one I use now is the one built by Gibson 20 years ago.

    The strings are very bright out of the pack and mellow into a nice phosphor bronze tone after a while.

    The packaging was nice, but I had to inspect it before putting them on my acoustic, the high E string was loose, but it was not much of a problem because after all, what matters is the inside.

    Common Questions


    Does this include all 6 strings?


    If you only want one pack, you should select the 1 pack. Otherwise, you can look up and find individual strings.


    The first two strings broke when my son put them on, so we are on the third set in twenty minutes.


    If you go to YouTube, you will learn how to string a guitar and all the other tricks that should be done while putting strings on.


    I have a D'Addario string that I would like to replace. What type of D'Addario strings do I use?


    I have a 45 year old Martin d-28 I use the extra light strings EJ 15 3 D because I like to fingerpick they have a very good warm soundif your guitar is fairly new try the light gauge strings they sound very good too and you can buy 3 packs for under$15 at


    Is it possible that these work with first act acoustic guitars?


    I'm answering just in case others see this question and think First Act guitars might be helpful, and most First Act guitars are meant as toys for young children.


    What is the major difference between custom light and light gauge strings?


    The custom light gauge is easier to use on the fingers, but not quite as loud as the light gauge.
