    Strings Anyone Remember "Nashville Straights" Guitar Strings from the Mid/Late `70's?

    Was wondering what happened to them? They came in a 3' long box and the strings were sealed in a cello type envelope. Sure would love to find a couple of boxes of them.. I use to use them because they lasted a long damn time. they were (duh) straight, not coiled.
    My hobby is collecting vintage strings, so just like to know what happened to them. I use to use them on my Travis Bean Artist guitar in `76-`79 or so..
    Thanks!!

    I remember them. They were a period piece.

    Yes we had them down here, I never used them as I think I was into La Bella at the time and stringing up my double neck with those.

    Yes, still have the cool box, hanging in the garage. A bit of nostalgia.
