Has anyone here used Long & McQuade brand guitar strings? Any good? Price is right.

It's a personal/guitar/tonality centric opinion so I'd just pick up the gauge you'd like to try and check em out. I've tried a number of different types of string on both electric and acoustic and tend to go back to certain brands and types that sound best for me. Haven't tried the L&M ones yet though.

I use them pretty regularly. The electric strings I use are a dead ringer for GHS strings. I don’t know if they actually are GHS strings, but the gauges are the same.

They’re definitely something rebranded. I originally thought they were D’addario but I haven’t confirmed that.

Find out who makes them. I would imagine they're rebranded. Fender doesn't make their own strings anymore as well, they're DAddarios
I am sure they are as are most strings we see on the market.

I heard that Dean Markely may be or may have been the brand that L&M use for the strings. But I really have no way of verifying that.
