What's the difference between string sizes (ex. 10-48 and 13-58)? Do they just sound different? or do they play easier, etc?

the higher guage you go, the harder it is to play. 12's are standard for acoustic i think. I would stick with 12s or 11's. The sound also changes when you switch guages.

I have some "Cleartone" strings that come with "Enhanced Molecular Coating" and they seem to have a better sound and last longer than Elixirs.

Here's a link: http://www.cleartonestrings.com/
Read it and see what you think.


Is that humanly possible? I might have to look into these... How much do they go for?

Those cleartones must be expensive...they seem pretty awesome though.

^^ I think they were around $12.00 USD a set for the .12's. The same price as Elixir's... roughly. I only bought one set to try them out (recommended by the salesman). I'm certain the price would go way down if I bought a box of them.

It's generally accepted that thicker strings give a better tone. However, they are harder to play, especially if you're doing bends.

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a close-minded moron.
