Elixers on my acoustics. Nanowebs I think in the purple box. I like them after about an hour or so.
EXACTLY how I've been running for about 8 years now, JD. Exactly the same. Scary

They definitely last forever ... I can't remember breaking one in a real long time. The downside is that don't sound as bright as some other strings I've used. As to the PU height its funny you ask .... I just raised mine to the limit (LACE SENSORs) and its really helped. I had my guitar tech lend his ears to get a perfect balance across the three PUs and across all the strings.
Thanks much, Marcus!! At least I know there is some merit to what my mind is thinking (for once)

Those are the ones I was looking at, Keir! And yes, your other post re-sparked something that I had churning in my mind for some time...

Fuzzy underneath? I thought that was just dirt
Last question, anyone play slide with Elixers?
