Acoustic Guitar StringsWhich string or string gauge is recommended for the acoustic guitar? This question is really difficult to answer because the answer can always be answered by each of themselves. We give here only small recommendations, which may simplify your decision maybe. Some guitarists prefer the 010 gauge, since it is easy to play ... but the low E string when playing with a plectrum can rattle even fast times. From the .011 gauge increases the sound volume to already significant. Who then more like, you can also use a .012 gauge. Please keep in mind that even the multi-string tension of the neck and it may affect the action.
