Quotes from famous guitarists;

"My guitar is not a thing. It's an extension of myself."
Joan Jett
"A guitar is more then a sound box... it is part of your soul."
Manuel Velazquez
".. the guitar is just a wonderful instrument. It's everything; a bartender, a psychiatrist, a housewife. It's everything but elusive."
Les Paul
"Guitar players get inward and analytical about their playing but when you start to get positive feedback from other players it makes you think that it is coming together."
John Petrucci
"I play guitar because it lets me dream out loud."
Michael Hedges
"There's such a wealth of arts and styles within the guitar... flamenco, jazz, rock, blues... you name it, it's there. In the early days my dream was to fuse all those styles. Now composing has become just as important."
Jimmy Page
"I just go where the guitar takes me."
Angus Young
"The guitar is your first wings. It's assigned and designed to unfold your vision and imagination."
Carlos Santana
"I never stop being amazed by all the different ways of playing the guitar and making it deliver a message."
Les Paul
"I wanted to connect my guitar to human emotions."
B. B. King
"Your sound is in your hands as much as anything. It's the way you pick, and the way you hold the guitar, more than it is the amp or the guitar you use."
Stevei Ray Vaughan
"Listening is the key to everything good in music.""
Pat Methney

Nicola's Priority To You. . .
Superior Quality Excellent Feel Superb Tone

Making sure that every pack of Nicola Brand Strings you open is as fresh as the day they were manufactured. When we introduced "VCI Paper" (Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor) it was the first step.    We've now gone one step further to ensure our strings are fresh, so when you open a pack of Nicola Strings and string them up, they'll be as fresh as the day we made them. That's two levels of protection. Our new SFP Technology (Sealed Factory Packaging) is the latest step in giving you the best strings manufactured, delivering to you the tone and quality that every musician deserves.
