Does anyone know what brand of strings Jake uses or used?

Postby Fedaykin » Mon Jun 20, 2011 3:44 am

I've been wondering for a long time what string brand Jake used or uses now. I always thought GHS Boomers, as he had a very bright sound, but that could also be due to the stop bridges he used on strat type guitars. I know he used 10 guage. Anyone know? Thanks!

You might want to check out the "Gear Specs and Equipment" section on the HOME page under Information & hopefully it's mentioned there what kind of guitar strings Mr. Jake E. Lee uses. Other then that I havn't a clear due to I don't play the guitar and don't know nothing about gear guitar stuff. Good luck! :)

I have checked gear and specs many times and could not find it. I am guessing GHS strings but who knows. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Maybe Jake uses piano strings to get a heavy sound. After all, he is the guitar ninja from a big Sicilian family.

Jaques Eilee is the greatest guitar player ever to come out of the Burgundy region of France.

:lol: yeah i think you pretty right that Jake have been using very heavy strings bcuz hes a masochist in music AND so being into a senior conservatory in the age of 12 for classic piano . The reason he has piano strings becuz Jake wasn't allowed for his parents to deal with either rock or pop, so when his piano was to be re-stringed he pretended to put the old strings in the garbagebin. But as he used to borrow his sissters guitar,secretly, he asked for permission of his sister to restring her acoustic guitar.. but what she didnt know he changed it to piano strings ....

btw whats about italy :roll: i dont think there are any italian connection in his family-tree...at least on his mothers side he comes from a samurai line 400yrs ago in 2001

I thought he was French. He always wore a beret offstage and hung out in cafes on the left bank of Paris.

Jaques Elysee, the great French guitar player, also gave a lot of style to Johnny Halliday. I remember seeing him in concert at the Montreaux festival in '77, the Journal d'un Fou (Diary of a Madman) tour, as the headliner. Jaques did a great solo during the song Whole Lotta Shakin'. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AskPnkxVTcc

The French can fuck up anything. They can take the coolness out of ice.

Of course, I am talking about Johnny Halliday, not the great Jaques Elysee.
