    I'm covered as far as the capo goes, or I will be once it arrives. And before anyone mentions it, yes, I am a sucker. :D

    I have been using Elixir 80/20 for years on my Taylor 512. I like the way they sound and they do last. Changing strings lost its mystery yers ago. With these, I put them on, play the daylights out of them for about 15 minutes, retune 1/2 step high and put it in the case overnight. Next day I retune and I'm good. FWIW, I also have a set of Elixir Optiweb 10s on my Yahmaha Revstar 820 which I like the sound of. I didn't care for them on my Streamliner 2622 however. That one gets D'Addario NYXL 10s.

    Well I think that settles it. I think the next set will be elixirs since they seem to last and that means fewer string changes! Now I get to go to the guitar shop and buy em! seems like the right way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

    I did forget to mention that they are a bit pricy. Hope sticker shock passes quickly.
