i just got back from guitar center. i spent 45$ on a set of elixir polyweb strings. this may sound like alot but they are well worth it. I swear by these strings. You have to get some and try them yourself. They are unbelieveable. I Don't get any buzzing, sticking, and i don't have to wear them in. Make sure you get polyweb and not nanoweb, cuz the polyweb have extra coating on them. I'll let the know how the string withstand time, because they are supposivly built to last.
