Closeout Elixir Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings 3-Pack (Light)

Out of the thousands of sets of these we've sold this year, a few have arrived with squished packaging. So, these are brand new, but with scrunched boxes.

Elixir Strings are brought to you by W.L. Gore and Associates, an innovator in PTFE polymer since 1958 (think Teflon). If you're a skier and a hiker like me, you've probably used Gore-Tex clothing for years. Now, they turn this expertise to making polymer coatings for their Elixir guitar strings, and the results are striking. You don't have to spend long in any guitar-related discussion before someone eventually begins praising the long-lasting tone of these popular strings. It's this long-lasting tone that has led many major guitar manufacturers to ship their guitars already strung with Elixir strings.

Elixir offers these in bonus packs of 3 sets each, but they only do so for 3 months a year. So, be sure to stock up!

Great Strings, Long Lasting

As an "hour a day" player, these strings last for months at a time without any tone sacrifice. Usually with most strings, you get to that second month and you're, if I weren't so lazy, I'd change my strings. Let the laziness spring forth with Elixir. As always, great customer service and order fulfillment by the lads at Shoreline Music.

Great strings, great price, great service.

This is the same review I did for the Elixir PB lights which is what I generally use. The review applies equally to the Elixir 80/20 lights that I just purchased. The reason I tried the 80/20's this time was for a particular Rosewood/Cedar acoustic guitar that I have. It's an incredible sounding guitar but to my ear, I wanted a bit more clarity and brightness for the style of music I play. I put them on and it did just what I was looking for with all of the great attributes of the PB's that I detailed in the following review.

In my experience, Elixirs sound good when you first put them on but sound even better after they're on a bit and "played-in". They have that nice, bright sound that a lot of folks really like when putting on new strings. The difference is that it lasts, and lasts, and lasts.
I play fingerstyle guitar, a lot, and though most people are impressed by the way they feel on your fretting hand, I find it makes a difference on right hand nail longevity, as well. I do like the fact that you don't get the "string zing" that's normally inherent in uncoated strings, though that's not a terribly big issue for me.
If you like to change strings - don't buy Elixirs. If you want a great sounding and feeling string that lasts a LONG time, then Elixirs just might be your favorite string.
