    What acoustic guitar strings do you use - if you play one:)?

    I am fed up with Martin's and Earthwood strings as they always sound odd on my Fender 12 string and Ovation 6 string. I decided to try Elixir Strings and they seem brilliant for now.

    What do you use, as I might try them next time?

    I didn't know the strings you used made any difference. lol

    OH bought a Yamaha 310 a few weeks ago, just uses the strings that came with it, will have to keep in mind that the strings you buy matter.

    Though some will disagree, I'd recommend a light gauge string (around 12 gauge) as the thicker ones will hurt your fingers and harder to wind on the guitar.

    I've just started playing again, sore finger stage :cry:

    I would not recommend this as the tension on one side of the neck might warp it. Just buy extra light strings.
