GHS

The founders of GHS had a wealth of string making experience when they started the small family-owned business in 1964. Now, GHS has grown to one of the leading manufacturers in this music specialty. The "Brightness Bar" found on select packages of strings, will show you what strings produce which kinds of tone. GHS produces a full line of strings for fretted instruments - electric, acoustic and classical guitar; electric bass; banjo; mandolin; pedal and steel guitar and much more.

FLOYD ROSE

Floyd Rose invented the locking tremolo system in 1976. A series of artist endorsements, most notably Eddie Van Halen, led to commercial success and the Floyd Rose tremolo was patented and mass-manufactured with Kramer.As of 2005, distribution of the Floyd Rose Original reverted to Floyd Rose, while the patented designs are still licensed to other manufacturers for use.  The Floyd Rose brand exists now as a division of AP International, under the direction of Andrew Papiccio, former Vice President of Kramer guitars. AP has been dealing with the manufacture, distribution, sales and marketing of musical instruments and accessories on a global scale for over 30 years.

Fender

The company was founded by Leo Fender as Fender's Radio Service in late 1938 in Fullerton, California, USA. While repairing musical instrument amplifiers in his electronics workshop he noticed their design flaws. He began making a few amplifiers using his own designs or modifications to designs. By the early 1940s, he had teamed up with another local electronics enthusiast named Clayton Orr (Doc) Kauffman, and they formed a company named K & F Manufacturing Corp. to design, manufacture, and sell electric instruments and amplifiers. Production began in 1945 with Hawaiian lap steel guitars (incorporating a patented pickup) and amplifiers, which were sold as sets. Leo Fender decided to concentrate on manufacturing rather than repair. Kauffman remained unconvinced, however, and they had amicably parted ways by early 1946. At that point Leo renamed the company the Fender Electric Instrument Company.
