    Comments about Martin Retro Acoustic Guitar Strings Extra Light Gauge:

    These seem like some really good strings so far. This is the 1st time I have tried them on my Taylor GS Mini Mahogany. I like the feel of them - softer than the Elixers I've been using for years. So far I have them on only one guitar - the most "temperamental" as far as holding the pitch and that sort of thing. And so far so good. If they turn out to be consistent quality, after awhile I will switch over my other 2 guitars if I like them. One at a time. I really like the softer tone they seem to have.

      Comments about Martin Retro Acoustic Guitar Strings Extra Light Gauge:

      I'm 65 years old. I played professionally in the 1970's, but just small gigs and for fun these days. When it comes to which strings are best; don't go by me, I change my mind constantly. But I put these on my Martin acoustic and really liked the tone. So I figured what the heck, they're nickel monel strings, they should work for my Les Paul! A friend and I were blown away by the Tone it added to the Les Paul. No problem bending the third string either. I'm gonna put them on the J-45 next. Maybe even the Strat lol
