Here’s the second version of the package cover (front & back) of the NST String sets that were sold on many GC courses and events from 1999 onward. The string sets and packaging was initiated by Jonathan Brainin, one of the founding members of the NJ Guitar Circle (NJGC). The 1st version of this set contained a .058w 6th string (C) instead of the .59w. Also, the 1st version didn’t have the graphic design and info on the back. I remember the sets came w/ two 1st strings (.011) in the package for a period of time due to many first timers snapping the string as they tuned up to G. The design is by Pablo Mandel. Also, during weekly meetings and recitals the NJGC held, you could purchase these afterward in whatever quantity you needed.
