Martin MA170 electro / acoustic strings SP 80/20 10-47

This is an extra light version of the bog standard gauge but still suitable for most acoustic and electro acoustic guitars.
This gauge is a lot lighter (softer feeling) than the standard gauge (gauge, not MAKE) that seems to be fitted to 95% of new acoustic guitars.
Suitable for absolute beginners as it makes the guitar easier to play compared to heavier gauges.
Just bare in mind that ‘Medium’ gauge strings are actually heavy and hard to play (hey I don’t make the rules up lol) and will hurt your fingers more but make your guitar sound richer and fuller. Choose strings that feel comfy to you.
12-54 (light) would be the average / standard gauge fitted to most new acoustic guitars. Yeah, I know, bit confusing..

Individual string Gauge as follows:

These strings are engineered with the performer in mind and they will always stand up to rigorous practice and performance schedules. We start with our highest tensile-strength core wire, then tin-plate it on all six strings for added corrosion resistance; because what you don’t see matters! When coupled with our highest quality wrap wire you get consistent true tone that you can count on song after song. Available in 80/20 Bronze and 92/8 Phosphor Bronze.

Martin Authentic Acoustic SP® strings offer excellent tuning stability, corrosion resistance and great playability.
