    Has anyone tried these yet and are they like the xls without the nickel plating?

    I love 'em.

    I use them on my Lakland 55-01. I use the EPS170-5SL.

    They are bright without being harsh, and can really thumb when you need them to. The E and B strongs both have a "piano-like" tone, as advertised. The A,D, and G strings have nice sweet highs.

    Overall, great strings!!
