NEON is the second in DR's SuperStrings series. Super bright in daylight, and with stage lighting. DR's NEON strings are so bright in appearance "they look like they are on fire." DR's NEON strings shine brightly under stage lights, and are 100% black light active so they glow strongly under UV lighting. And DR's NEON sound as good as they look. As Joey Clemment from Selena Gomez said, "Yeah they look great, but they sound incredible!"
NEON is the first coated string to make no apologies. While NEON lasts as long as a coated string should (three to four times as long as uncoated strings) they sound as good, or better than uncoated strings.
K3 Coating Care
The K3 coating on EXTRA-life strings is designed for use with standard picks and fingers. The K3 coating can be damaged by scraping against metal. It is important that care be taken when stringing guitars and basses where the strings are passed through a metal block or bridge. Scraping can damage the coating.

I bought a guitar with these strings already on it so i used them for a while until after 3 weeks the b string broke, I decided I would give them a second chance and got a new set, While I was stringing up the new the set the high e broke, after 2 weeks of playing the b string broke again. These string look cool but the high strings do not hold up, All my other guitars have ernie ball strings and I can play with the same strings for 3 to 4 months without ever breaking a string. So I will not be buying these again.
I purchased these strings about a week ago and I'm pleased with the sound but not the coloration. I have to admit the 2-6th strings have 100% maintained full coloration but the high E string not so much... After only a week of playing there is about a 3 inch stretch of string above the pickups where the neon has completely disappeared. Also above every fret there is wear, which increases when going up the neck. I do enjoy the strings but If you expect absolute perfection in coloration I don't recommend them. They sound great but you can just pay less for the same set uncolored that will also sound great.
I bought these strings for my Epiphone Les Paul about a month ago after I saw them on an ESP. They looked cool, but i was skeptical that it would be their only attribute. I was dead wrong: these string sound great. They are very versatile and are great for rhythm or lead guitar in multiple genres. I can play Eric Clapton one minute then tune down and play A Day To Remember without any loss of quality The color coating, aside from looking amazing is very strong (and glows under blacklights) As long as you don't do a ton of pick slides, they color will stay vibrant. Plus it's amusing to see the look on people's faces when you take your guitar out of its case and the string are green. It's one of the few things that you can buy that looks as great as it sounds.
