GHS Strings is an American string manufacturer based Battle Creek, Michigan, specializing in electric and acoustic guitar and bass guitar strings. The company was founded on August 1, 1964,[1] and in 1975 was bought by Robert McFee, who is the Chairman of the Board with son, Russell McFee,[1] as President. The name GHS comes from the surnames of the company's founders -- Gould, Holcomb and Solko.[2]

In 2000, the GHS acquired guitar electronics company Rocktron, diversifying into new types of guitar equipment.[3]
