I play a Martin backpacker guitar, in the guitar it says to only use extra light strings. I broke a string so I went to the music store and asked for some 80/20 bronze strings. The guy working there gave me some custom light strings(custom lights are slightly bigger) and told me these were the same thing and would work fine. So should I put those on my guitar or will it screw it up?

Well, since it says specifically to use extra lights you should proceed with caution. However, a problem isn't likely, especially since it's only a slightly bigger gauge.

I do believe you just used Blink 182 and hard rock in the same sentence. It would seem you're rather confused.
I have a quote in my signature! And it makes fun of blink-182! I'm cool now!

Be careful, it might void any warranty you have if it breaks :P

one of my friend had strung his guitar with 13's when his guitar could only take 12s or less. when he took it to the shop they said that his bridge could have ripped out if he kept using them.

just be sure you know it's okay.

Go onto the martin website and look at the string section. It should tell you there.
