Elixir Nanoweb Acoustic Guitar Strings

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.

Best strings for me and best price

My hands have some sort of sweat/oil combination that corrodes regular strings within a week. Elixir's solved my issue and literally last for months. And the price through Shoreline is always the best. Thanks, John!

Very nice

I was not an immediate fan of Elixir strings. I tried Elixir Polyweb strings and disliked the slippery feel. However, I did like the Nanoweb strings better. After trying them several times I’ve found they are long-lasting and nice sounding in general. They are absolutely the perfect strings for some of my guitars and not ideal for others. So I think it’s worth trying them out to get a sense of how they perform on each guitar. I would give the Nanoweb PBs 5 stars and the 89/20s a 4 star rating. I find the 80/20s to be slightly “trebly” for my taste. However, I have not tried them on most of my guitars yet. I am not thrilled with how the wound strings fray over the sound hole after extended playing. But it doesn’t seem to affect the tone. Overall these are very nice strings that are worth the money.

3-Pack Makes The Price Unbeatable

Our fave string at 3 times the awesome. Thanks Shoreline!

Love the Sound and Durability

These strings have a bright sound when new and retain it for much longer than any other string I have tried. Good strings aren't cheap, so having them last a long time helps my budget.

Great strings, better service

The strings are standard, but this was my first time ordering from Shoreline, and they went above and beyond in terms of making me feel welcome. Will absolutely be turning to Shoreline for gear in the future.
