    Default Open G String is extra twangy.

    I moved up from Fender Super 250 9's set to Silver Bullet 10's and the G-string is very twangy. The B and E strings are very non-twangy. Why is this?

    Before i changed the high E 9 was the twangy string and that was one of the motivations among others to move to 10's. This twangy G is a mystery to me.

    Default Re: Open G String is extra twangy.

    Depending on where the twang is coming from, I'd fold a piece of sandpaper and run it through the GBE string slots, just to clean them up a bit. Sometimes, that's the source of pingy sounding strings or muffled strings.
    If you play guitar chest-high, you play from your heart.

    If you play guitar waist-high, you play from your guts.

    If you play guitar low, you play from your huevos.

    I'll give the sandpaper a try. Thanks GJ.
