I was with my friend when he bought this acoustic guitar and after hours of playing, he thought the strings does not bend well and there's not much clarity when he plays in fingerstyle and fingerpicking. I suggested d'addario .12-.53 gauge. I have tried elixir of same gauge but i had to replace mine again since i did not get the sound that i wanted. But i'm not sure if the d'addario strings will give him that bend and better clarity and tone since we have different guitars. Any suggestion?
