OVERVIEW

Fight the grunge!

Gauges 09-11-16-24-32-42.

Elixir Electric Guitar 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! No more gunk and goo. No more DNA evidence. No kidding.

In addition to an ultrathin grunge-resistant tubular coating on the wound strings, Polywebs now have a revolutionary Anti-Rust plating on the plain strings to extend their life too.

Elixirs are the first major innovation in guitar strings in over forty years, and deliver what they promise: great tone and long life no matter what you put them on or how often you play.

I bought these to replace factory strings on my new Ibanez Expressionist. I don't care for an unwound 3rd string. Also, they seem stiff. They may work well for you. Strings are a matter of personal preference.

Great strings! Probably the best on the market. The polyweb is much lighter than the nanowebs and feels more natural, very easy on the fingers

              Comments about Elixir Super Light Polyweb Electric Guitar Strings:

              I strung my Swingster with NANO's 9's>46's and I loved the feel, but it was far to brite for the Alnico pickups and an old Flextone II. 10 months of Nano use and I wanted to try the Polywebs but they don't have a comparable size to the Nano's so I bought the 12000 Super Lights and the 12050 Lights and made my own top light/ bottom heavy Polywebs. Wow! I can turn the tone higher than 2! wonderful strings for the Swingster.More resonate for this guitar and my use.

                  I was using fender bullets for years. Took a chance with these strings. They are AMAZING! I am using them on a Fender American Deluxe HSS Stratocaster, that came new with 9's. I am just blown away by the tone and playability of these strings.
