Best Sound - Best Value
These were on my Takamine Pro Series guitar as standard equipment. Nothing else I've tried sounds as good. You'd never know that they were coated and they last as long as any of the competition. When I restrung with these, my Tak sounded as good as my '76 Guild F-412. Bought them from Sweetwater through Ebay. Got 'em quick, free shipping, and they always follow-up with a phone call.
