I'm in the market for some new acoustic strings, steel strings not nylon, and just recently got my first acoustic so I'm not familiar with the best strings out there. I tend to stay around lighter strings so i think light for acoustic its .12 gauge? If anyone could tell me why they use their brand it'd help a lot.

I use 12s on mine, Martin or Martins is the brand, something like that anyway. I haven't changed them for a year

I use D' Addario for my acoustic.

EDIT: Why's this in the Electric Guitar forum? Go to the Accessories forum, more replies there.

I have trained a live tarantula to calm and sit on my guitar due to the awesome powers of my rocking. When I am not playing it angrily bounces about my room hitting everything that isn't me.

I have found a local supplier and bought a large amount of strings for very cheap and they are great

I just went about 6 months without re-stringing my LAG...never again, I didn't know the difference would be that marked...
