Ok, i just bought a Saegul Original withtt he original string form Godin that are ‘PHOSPHOR BRONZE ‘ LIGHT .012,.016,.024,.032,.042,.053.. I was thinking of replacing them with some D'Addario EFT16 Flat Top Gauges 12-16-24-32-42-53 or Martin M130 Folk Guitar Silk & Steel 11.5-14-23-28-38-47. Now if i were to get the flat tops, is there an adjusting i would have to do? Also the same with the MArtins... My guitar is set for .12 strings.. will i have to change nayhitng to compensate for the 11.5 that the martins come with? thanks in advance
I forgot to mention that i like to play finger style and strumming.
The flat tops should be fine without any adjustment. The action using the Martin Silk & Steel will be very low because those strings are extremely low tension.
so then i am assuming it will ok for me haha
Yeah you'll be fine.
i've got the silk and steels on one of my seagulls and it didn't require any adjustment.
^ really? I put them on my Art & Lutherie(which had quite high action) and it lowered it significantly because of the lower tension. Silk & Steel strings are about 130lbs of tension while regular 12's are about 160lbs or so.
