Which strings does Richie use?

Posted by on February 13, 2014

Okay, there you have it….. Which guitar strings does Richie Sambora use? Really?  Yup… I just wondered if Richie would have any preference in strings, just like I do. Typically, I use the standard Fender .009 string set. Nothing fancy, just the Fender® Super 250’s Nickel-Plated Steel (NPS) strings .009.

Now, back to Richie. I recently learned that Richie has endorsed a guitar string line at D’addario Strings. There are three types of strings Richie endorsed. I have not yet figured out which gauges, though.

XP15 Coated Phosphor Bronze, Extra Light, 10-47 (details here) – Price: approximately €12,- per set

I honestly admit that I have not yet tried these strings….. yet…. But I definitely will try the XP15 set and see what these do.
