These strings are just the thing to keep your old Martin sounding like an old Martin. I put them on my 1949 0-15 and couldn't be Happier! Thanks Shoreline for the Super Fast Service!! AA+++

Just can't get them to last.

Shoreline is great, but this is my 3rd time trying these and they never last longer than 3 days. I do like the initial tone, yet they always doe on me after just a few hours. Will stick to SPs and John Pearse's.

Good to go

I put these strings on a week and a half ago. Didn't stretch them , just tuned up and they are still in tune. The sound isn't the cutting sound you get with most new strings. Nice blend of tones with fingers or flat pick. Happy with them so far, will see about longevity.

Martin Monel retro strings

I heard about these strings online, a decided to give them a try. Do they make your guitar sound old? I'm not sure, but I like the sound I hear.
