Enjoy the playing ease of an electric guitar with great note-bending ability. Elixir Acoustic Guitar Strings are the first major innovation in strings in over forty years. And they deliver what they promise: great tone and long life no matter what guitar you put them on or how often you play.
Elixir Strings are covered with an ultrathin, space-age polymer tube that contacts the string on the tops of the windings only. This leaves the all-important winding-to-winding-to-core space free from the fear of the enemies of tone!
Most players report that Elixir Strings keep sounding great 3 to 5 times longer than ordinary strings.

Great product and fast delivery! I was very surprised how fast I got the strings and it was the perfect gift for my husband.
The Elixir Polyweb strings were recommended by the GC salesman for a used Martin I was buying. They cost more than I was accustomed to paying, but the salesman was rabid about the strings, so I bought them. He was right. The strings not only play phenomenally well, they have held up to the daily abuse I give them, and still sound terrific. The tone is much richer than the strings I've used previously, and they still sound good after three months. I play at least one hour per day, and the only time I have to retune is when there has been a temperature change in my house. I've already bought my next set of Elixir Polyweb, and purchased additional sets to give as Christmas gifts.
My 14 year old daughter began to apply her knowledge of Music Teory, Keyboard, and Trumpet, to my 1978 Ibanez Acoustic (Martin Copy). It was strung with Medium to High-Grade, Medium-Gauge strings. I decided I was long overdue to give this guitar a completely fresh Set-Up, and chose these strings, and I began to give her the guitar lessons she's been asking for. When I was done, she picked up this guitar, and after playing a few of her Self-Taught Chords and Melodies, the smile on her face was PRICELESS! The Tone Quality Excellent! I was truly amazed, especially for such Light Gauge Strings! The Ease Of Playing, compared to some of the previous strings I've used on this guitar, is much better, with very little, if any, loss of a nice, rich tone! After a couple of hours, she was playing Rhythm, as I played Lead and varous Melodies on my Stratocaster! I was sure glad I paid the few extra dollars for these strings! Enough Said! Try These Out! You'll Be Glad You Did!
When I went to put them on, one of them broke. I also saw that the coating started to come off. Other than that there pretty good, despite the fact that that there still is a little string squeak, but that doesn't make them bad. After I'd ordered them I found out that they weren't the type of strings my guitar was recommended. The first few day's are the best although you have to tune them often, there still the best day's trust me. I probably won't buy elixers next time. I also wanted to mention the price. That is alot of cash for not top shelf strings. You could get a three pack for that price. Over all I wouldn't recommend. These aren't top shelf strings for the price of top shelf srtings.
