    Yea, I remember buying these about a year ago at around $13.00 a set. What a bummer! They're great strings on my Silverangel, and last a long time.

    I'm using one on my flat-radius tenor guitar, and it's a nice solution. Gold Tone has a nut width template you can download & print so you can decide which premade nut will work (or if you should buy...

    Re: Heritage tenor

    Heritage is well-regarded in the electric guitar world. They're ex-Gibson employees that still work out of the old factory in Kalamazoo, making excellent Les Paul & 335-alikes.
