Let's not talk about how long I've had my guitar without really changing the strings ...

Alright, anyway it's time and I have been looking primarily at this set online:

D'Addario EJ26-3D Phospor Bronze
- http://www.musik-produktiv.es/pic-010019696l/guitarra-bajo-cuerdas-cuerdas-guitarra-acust-d-addario-ej26-3d-10019696.jpg

But then I found this set too:

D'Addario EXP26 Coated Phosphor Bronze
- http://static.music123.com/derivates/6/001/673/676/DV019_Jpg_Regular_104339_z2.jpg

Do you have any suggestions as to which one to pick - or do you even have other kinds that you think I should try out? - I am looking at a .011 set right now.

Thanks

I absolutely love Martin phosphor bronze strings, definitely worth a look.
Also 0.11s is pretty light for acoustic, I would strongly recommend going a little heavier. I use 0.13s, but 0.12s are standard

Always up for some C4C, been compared to Frank Turner, The Cure's Robert Smith and Bruce Springsteen so check out my stuff if you like the sound of that

I usually go with Dean Markley VintageBronze 0.12 for my acoustic. They are extremely comfortable and sounds really good.
Ayy there

Hmm, I'll take a look at the ones you guys have suggested. - One thing though, my teacher told me I should try out .011 ones, possibly because the strings get further and further away from the fretboard when you go up the board. I don't know if that makes sense?

Like .. Hang on I'll add a picture to my profile, please check it out and let me know if you have any suggestions regarding what to do about it. Thanks.

Just uploaded two pictures under 'gear' in my profile. - You should be able to see that the first couple of frets are really close (which is awesome!) to the strings, but as you get high up the neck the strings get further away which can be a pain because they 'move around' too much, if that makes sense. (: --- Any idea of what to do, or am I stuck with this until I get a new guitar? It's not the end of the world, but I tried my teachers guitar (GUILD) and the strings were really close to the fretboard all the way which makes it so much easier to play!

Take it in and get it set up.. They'll remove the bridge saddle, file down the underside of it, and your action will be lower... (I don't recommend doing this yourself)

but if you insist... Here's a good read..

@Papabear, you're a genius! I took at quick look at the website you mentioned and it seems waaay too risky to do yourself, at least for now, so maybe I'll bring it in next week. Thanks a lot for the help.
