Thread Name: Guild guitar string replacements
Subject: RE: Guild guitar string replacements
I have an ongoing love/hate relationship with the Elixer strings. On my six string, they are unsurpassed in durability and sound. Some folks don't like the slick feeling of them, but I love it and the fact that string slide noise is greatly reduced. One of the nicest things about these strings is the fact that they stay bright until the end. Another downside is the cost. They are almost double the cost of the others. But they last longer........on the six string. On my 12 string Guild (make a birdhouse out of her, indeed, Kendall you auld fart...hhhhuuuuummmmppppphhhhh!!!) they are wonderful also, but the G octave string breaks relatively quickly and I end up replacing it. But still, I love these strings.
