    Elixir Acoustic Strings

    Elixir strings come standard on the McPherson guitar and they’re also my strings of choice.  I’ve been happy with the Medium Nanoweb Acoustic Guitar strings, 80/20 bronze.  String gauges:

    E     0.013

    B     0.017

    G    0.026

    D    0.035

    A    0.045

    E    0.056

    I really appreciate you sharing your gear with us. One tiny request, though, would be your preference in picks (brand and guage). Everyone has their own choice, but this would just sate my curiosity.

    Loved the update and enjoyed all the great information.

    If you use 13′s on your acoustic, do you not use standard tuning?

    I imagine the string tension would be pretty high without tuning to at least Eb or D Standard.

    I use the same strings as Paul and I love them. I have been using them since I got my Taylor guitar, which came with those exact strings.

    I use the exact same strings but the light version as the medium version would warp my guitar and I have no personal technician to change the strings for me all the time. But it is a great combination with my Takamine guitar though. Loved the tone and the sound when it rings out.
