Just a quick question for the Guitar players out there. I have a Electro/Acoustic slim body Guitar and it's time to get some new strings. These ones have lost their life. Been playing forever but not an expert when it somes to strings for what is, basically, an Acoustic. That is how I use it. Rarely plugged in. Anyway, Any suggestions on some good strings for me? So many options. Cool.

I use Martin strings, .10 gague on my acoustic
Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind. Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

Thank you for that Richard.

I use Martin SP .12 guage on my acoustic.  Nice & bright sounding.

Yep, another Martin user - .12 to .54. 80/20 Bronze for me.

Is this a hollow-bodied electric Felix, or a acoustic that you can plug in? If it's an acoustic, you can't go wrong with a set of Martins :)

Sorry to have seen this so late, but I bought a set of Elixir before Christmas and I've been delighted with the way they've retained their brightness so long, due to the 'nanoweb' coating. I use them on a Yamaha electro-acoustic.

Thank you. I may give those a shot when I order some next time. Went with the Martins this time.
