Taylor Guitars has further enhanced its T5 Electric/Acoustic line with a 12-string model. The new model features Elixir® Strings new Anti-Rust Electric Strings for 12-string guitar to ensure maximum tone longevity.

David Hosler of Taylor Guitars says that Elixir® Strings play an integral role in supporting Taylor Guitars' objective to offer the market an electric 12-string guitar that you might actually play for more than one or two songs. "Although some of the electric 12-string string sets on the market were close to what we had in mind, none of them were perfect for insuring the playability and intonation we were designing into the guitar. The tone and longevity of Elixir Electric strings made them a perfect choice for this project."

While Elixir® Strings new electric 12-string set was developed at Taylor Guitars' request, it is compatible with any 12-string guitar, delivering the fresh feel and bright tone of Elixir® Strings six-string sets with the benefits of greater string endurance that last three to five times longer than ordinary strings.

As any guitarist with 12-string experience can attest, changing strings on a 12-string guitar is a time-consuming and sometimes difficult process. Using Elixir® Strings new Anti-Rust Electric 12-String set, players can now enjoy the bright tone and punch of uncoated strings for a greater period of time, reducing the frequency of string replacement.

The new set is comprised of eight Anti-Rust Plated Plain Steel Strings and four wound strings featuring Elixir® Strings ultra-thin NANOWEB® Coating technology. The thin NANOWEB® Coating is nearly undetectable - providing the feel of traditional strings. The new electric 12-string set is offered in a Light Gauge configuration, with eight plain and four wound strings. The gauges are: .010, .010, .013, .013, .017, .009, .026w, .012, .036w, .018, .046w, and .026w.

Elixir® Strings Anti-Rust Electric Strings for 12-string guitar carry an MSRP of $19.99.
