Just FYI, I have tried to get onto the Live Steel Strings website and get an error page that says "UNAVAILABLE". I wonder if they kept the business open after Sid passed away.

If I was playing all the time like I used to (I played my first gig in about 5 months last weekend), I would probably stay with the NYXL strings. But, right now, I am on a fixed income (as is my wife), and the price is a bit much for me.

I also can't speak of longevity, but the set on my Mullen goes flat every morning, sometimes by a fair amount. But we have been going through some really hot days. It could be the guitar though. Not a big deal. I stays in tune after I re-tune them.

It would be of benefit if Live Steel Strings had a description of the strings and their gauges, especially when offering "custom" gauges etc. Even a pic of the back of packaging would help. I didn't see a link to determine that.

AHA! Problem solved. Good to know they are still around.

Bob should change the link in the Links section.

Sorry for the double post. Was having issues with a debug error when posting.

When you click on a string set, you will see the gauges in the description.
