One thing to ask yourself about guitar strings is do you enjoy changing them, or is it a chore for you?  If it is a chore, I highly suggest the NANOWEB strings as they will last longer for you.  Personally, I enjoy changing them as I get that "working on my instrument feel."  If you have any guitar questions, we can be contacted through our contact us page found here.
