I was with my friend when he bought fender cd-60ce acoustic guitar and after playing the new guitar for a few hours, he wanted to change the strings because they don't bend that well and there's not much clarity when he's playing in fingerstyle and fingerpicking. The gauge is .12-.53. I told him to try d'addario with similar gauges. I tried elixir but ended up replacing it again with d'addario. But i'm not sure if he'll get more clarity and greater tone with d'addario since we have different acoustic guitars. Any suggestions? Thank you
he'd do well to buy a new saddle. one that's not made of plastic. that'd be a small start in the right direction. he's not going to get a whole lot of clarity out of an all-laminate guitar.
