So I brought out my acoustic after not touching for about a year. I've never changed the strings since I first got it (shameful, I know). I'm planning on going to get a new pack, but I'm not totally sure about the current string gauge. I'm guessing it's got .12's on since they are pretty thick.

Also, any brand recommendations? I usually stick to D'addarios on my Strat, but I'm open to any suggestions.

One more thing: how do phospor bronze and coated strings compared to plain ones? Thanks in advance.

normal gauge is 13.

Disagree. Normal is 12. 12's are Light. 13's are Medium.

yup. i've contacted several guitar manufacturers including seagull, blueridge, guild and yamaha, and their guitars all come with 12's. many come with d'addarios, although taylors come with elixer 12's.
