Comments about Fender 880L Coated 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings - Light:

3 stars from me....that's right in the middle. The reason for this, is I would NEVER put these on a regular acoustic guitar.
They are in the "higher range" of the tone spectrum. Some may even say a little "tinny". Based on that, I think they are perfect for an Electric-Acoustic (in my opinion, and to my ears).
They came with my recently purchased Fender T-Bucket 300CE...and I was surprised how good they sound plugged and unplugged on that particular guitar...so impressed that I not only kept them on the guitar, but bought another set for back-up strings.
At some point I MAY try something different on the T-Bucket...but right now, I am impressed with the sparkling sound of these.
I like my regular acoustics to have a lower, more mellow sound, so I wouldn't even consider these strings for that....they are just much too bright.
Everyone's ear is different...but if you like your Electric-Acoustic to have a bright tone; I'd go ahead and grab a set. If you're looking for more of a booming low rhythm sound...do NOT get these, because you will not find it with these strings.
As for 'longevity', I personally have only been playing on them for about a month now...but my buddy has used 80/20 Coated Bronze for years now, and says they last forever in structure and tone.

      I love these string on my Rogue RA- 090. I just got my first guitar, and these were my first replacements. In comparison to the originals, these sounded like a harp! I would totally get these next time I have to change stings.

          These strings are wonderful. I had a set of D'addario exp-16's on my Ibanez Artwood and changed to these because I had heard that they were brighter sounding. They definitely are to me. Absolutely love them.

          Great choice for a resonator

          Comments about Fender 880L Coated 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings - Light:

          My new Fender FR-55 metal resonator came with these strings and they are a perfect match. These Fenders have more sustain than other strings that I have tried on my old FR-48 resonator and the coating seems to dampen the sound just enough to eliminate the overly-bright, tinny edge some 80/20s have. Will definitely buy a set when it comes time for new strings.

          Fender Strings Rock

          By 

          from Near Las Vegas

          Comments about Fender 880L Coated 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings - Light:

          I have an acoustic guitar - Fender T-bucket - and recently had it restrung - I asked for identical strings, but didn't get them! The guy put on something else and it sounded tinny and awful - plus they were a different gauge. I was very unhappy - but did some research and found out what was on it from the factory - These 880L duracoat 80/20 Bronze strings (light) make all the difference - My guitar plays like a dream again! It was worth the wait while they were on backorder - I will order more than one set next time!
