   A440 Hz .0059 Guitar plain steel string    Price $8.00        

               25.5" to 27" Scale Length

 

We tested this string on the Oakland Axe Factory 10-string (fanned fretboard 30"-27") guitar with Sperzel locking tuners. When tuned to A440Hz it can bend up past the E4, B3 and to the G3 string. It can bend pitch about 1 whole step. This guitar was designed with tuning to high A4 in mind. If you order this string, you will need to read and follow the enclosed instructions carefully.

 Do not order the .0059 string without contacting us first !
