Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Heavy .012-.052
In stock at Guitar Center
Amp up your guitar’s tone life with the same premium electric guitar strings that experienced players worldwide trust to keep their incredible tone longer than any other string available. Unlike other string brands, Elixir Strings coats the whole string. This protects not only the outer string surface but also the gaps between the windings where common tone-deadening gunk typically builds up in other brands’ coated and uncoated guitar strings.
Who wouldn’t love more quality playing time between the hassle and cost of string changes?
Engineered to endure, these nickel-plated steel electric guitar strings boast a ton of bright, vibrant presence and dynamic punch. Compared to our original POLYWEB Coating, the ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating allows a more traditionally textured, "uncoated" feel.
For a slicker, gentler feel, try a set of electric guitar strings with Elixir's original POLYWEB Coating, which also feature a warmer tone.
Of course, the kind of string you play is all a matter of personal preference. Not sure what tone or feel is right for you? Try them out for yourself, and find your new favorite string from Elixir Strings.

Reviews From Buyers
My friend told me about Elixir strings once. Before, I was using D'Addario XL 11-gauge strings, and after 2 weeks of light de-tuning and re-tuning, the high E string snapped. This was a .011-gauge string mind you! When I scrounged up the cash, I bought some of these strings, and I can safely say these are some of the best strings I've ever used. My fingers slide effortlessly across them, and they have some of the richest tone I've ever heard from a guitar string. If you need new strings, do yourself a favor and get these!
