I'm very unimpressed by these strings. I put them on my best guitar, a custom made Kenny Hill, cedar/Brazilian, and I ended up taking them off after 3 weeks. I couldn't even play the guitar for 5 minutes without putting it back in the case out of frustration. The most glaring flaw was the g string which had terrible intonation. I would tune the string in the open position, then on the 12th fret harmonic, but the fretted 12th fret was 10-15cents sharp! I though maybe they just need to settle in, so I gave it three weeks - no change. Unplayable. In general, the trebles sounded lifeless and the basses were similarly lame. I'm all flummoxed and whatnot after seeing the glowing reviews here for these strings...I just don't see anything to indicate how they could be considered to be that great. And, considering the price - I've played sets which are under $10 which blow this set out of the water.
