    They are. Really. Better construction, better feel. Great tone.

    If you click on the bidding history, it looks very odd. There seems to be one shll that was jacking the price way up. And then some other dude came in and bidded $173 on it. I feel sorry for that guy. :(

    My understanding is that the Golden Spirals are not currently in production but when they were, they were $45 for a D string. Even the Golden Tone D is only $56.

    Someone is either playing games with the auction or is just too stupid to realise what the string is actually worth or just really, really stupid or perhaps they think they are bidding on a whole set (in which case they also aren't too smart).
