The elixirs on my acoustic (Fender sonoran) have finally seen their last chord...I've had them so long, I forget if they were polyweb or nanoweb...I'm looking to get the ones that are very bright sounding...Help?...

I think elixer is the **** and they do last longer and keep the "new string sound" longer. I don't care up the ability to slide more easily.
I live by elixir poly webs for acoustic and earnie ball slinkies for electric. I have found that elixir electric guitar string suck.
