I still have the stock strings on my Seagull M series acoustic guitar. Theyre pretty worn out now. My first question is which kind to buy. and my 2nd is do i need a bridge pin puller? ive played guitar over a year, ive just never changed acoustic strings, i play electirc mostly.

a bridge pin puller makes it easier. a spoon works when in a pinch.

put the bowl touching the guitar on top of a cloth, and lever the pin out by pressing the lip to the pin and pshing down on the spoons handle.

it works when you get a stubborn pin and doesnt crush the pins like pliers can.

ok, with that said, get the same gauge, winders/bridgepin tools help and are cheap, and swap one string at a time.

edit:
v elixers are nice, not a fan of martin strings, tbh. find them dull sounding.

I'd go for Elixir or Martin SP personally. You can get a bridge pin puller with a string winder in one which is nice.

I use DR's phosphorus bronze 10gauge. They help give a warm deep tone if that's what you're looking for. I picked up a "Gizmo" to help me change strings. It's like a swiss army knife for your guitar- has everything on it that you could possibly need.

I personally use Earthwood's all the time, I really like their tone compared to Elixers. I'd check them out at least, mine were less than $5 per set.
