Sound great on Breedlove dread

Comments about GHS Americana Light Acoustic Guitar Strings (12-54):

I've been using Martin SPs on my acoustics for years, and more recently Martin Retro strings, and I love them. But I just picked up a Breedlove Stage dreadnought and the Martins didn't suit it quite as well. So I gave these a shot since they were on sale, and the guitar absolutely sings with them on it!

Strings aren't a one-size-fits-all thing. You have to find the right type and gauge for each guitar individually. For my taste, these fit the voice of a Breedlove with spruce over solid rosewood perfectly. Haven't tried them on my Martin or Seagull acoustics yet, but I'm pretty sure I've already found the right strings for those.

Comments about GHS Americana Light Acoustic Guitar Strings (12-54):

My acoustic guitar is a cedar top and may sound a bit dark or muddy. These strings are provide a more articulate said with good projection. Got complements last time I played out. Check out the very similar GHS Laurence Juber string, too. These work for me, maybe you too.
