Continuing the discussion from Elixir vs. D'Addario XT (Long Lasting Strings):
Thought I should start a new topic (don’t know how to split them). The Elixir Polywebs did sound fine when I put them on but that didn’t last long. There’s almost no corrosion/wear on the strings at all but the bottom two wound strings (A and E) sound and feel dead and plunky. I thought maybe I had wound/seated them wrong so I took them off and reinstalled them. Didn’t help much with the E string but when I brought the A string up to pitch… Hooray! Normal sounding!
That lasted about 2 minutes.
So now I’m not sure what to do next… the guitar is only 3 months old and came set up by @Jake at the General Store so I’m guessing it’s not a setup issue. Thoughts?
