Thomastik-Infeld PJ116 John Pearse Folk Acoustic Guitar Strings

Unfortunately, these strings lead to a very serious intonation problem when used on folk (steelstring) guitars. This is likely due to the bass strings' nylon core, which does not respond to tension like a steel core. As a result, a compensated saddle that is correctly set up for steel strings (in terms of intonation) results in noticeably FLAT intonation up the fretboard on the low E, A and (to a lesser degree) D strings. This is not acceptable and it should be clearly stated on the package. In other words, these strings are ONLY suitable for classical guitars and other guitars with a straight horizontal (not compensated) saddle.
