Not all acoustic guitar strings are created equal - that's just common sense, and it means that, while many strings come with windings around them, there's also no shortage of plain acoustic guitar strings. They're the exclusive style for the narrow strings on the guitar, and even some of the bigger strings have plain options for musicians interested in fantastic durability, a smoother feel and a clear, technical tonal quality. As always in the world of music, strings are a matter of taste and choosing the best fit from this selection of plain acoustic guitar strings depends on your preferences... and, of course, on whether you're changing a single string or the whole set.

There are plenty of strings here that make good examples of what sets a great plain string apart from an average one. Take the Savarez 510AR Alliance Cantiga Normal Tension Guitar Strings for instance: this is a complete set, but its plain strings manage to stand out all the same. They do it by delivering brilliant projection and ample sustain, not to mention impressive playability thanks to a nice balance between smooth feel and high precision. But maybe you're more interested in customizing down to the individual string? No problem: go ahead and get started with a pack of 1, like the Ernie Ball Nickel Plain Single Guitar String, to scratch that itch for a guitar that's all your own right down to the last string.

Every acoustic guitar will have at least a few plain strings on it, because there are naturally a couple of strings that are just too small to carry windings. And if those are the strings you want to focus on when you pick out a set, then this selection of plain acoustic guitar strings is the place to be. You'll also be off to a good start if you're fine-tuning by picking up individual strings, or simply replacing one of your plain strings before it wears out. It's all good, and the strings are here waiting for you.
