1.0 out of 5 stars RECEIVED FAKE STRINGS! BUYER BEWARE!
Reviewed in Canada on 13 September 2018
I was very excited to try these strings based off of the fact that a huge number of Taylor players recommended them for my guitar. I placed my order on Amazon Prime expecting a nice hassle free playing and shopping experience.

I actually ordered the strings before a weekend and was waiting to receive them on the tuesday, but a friend happened to have an extra pair and gifted them to me. Lucky! I strung up my guitar and it sounded amazing. Twice the guitar player that I had previously sounded.

When I received my elixirs from amazon I immediately thought something was off... The colour where "phosphor bronze" was printed was darker than I had remembered. As well, the individual paper packages had some discolouration bleeding through from the individual rings. I took them out of the package and I swore that they weren't coated, but would save my judgement for when I got home and could compare them against the genuine thing.

The attached pictures show the real strings on my guitar, and the strings that I received still coiled, displaying them as clearly FAKE.

1) There is no coating on the ones from Amazon (you can see how the coated strings on my guitar look like they have a clear plastic coating - the nanoweb coating)

2) The colour of the metal of the new strings is darker and more gold-ish than the genuine ones

Further confirming their fakeness were misspellings on the individual paper packagings for the strings.

If you expect Amazon to stand behind the product though you will be disappointed. All they did was refund me and declined to send me a genuine pair of strings.
