    And to thicken the plot those Martin ma500fx’s have 282 pounds of tension, and claim to be flexible strings that allow bends, and reduce finger fatigue. Really curious how that will work out. That’s...

    Back to the original question... I just tried extra light Daddario PB's. As some others experienced, they were too light and thin for me on the Maple F512.

    As previously mentioned, the stock EXP...

    Got it, my bad on over-looking that those 12-52's were for 6 string. That said, I still find it a little odd that they define Light/Medium differently for 12-string sets across the EXP and non-EXP...

    Thanks, that's a great comparison tool.

    Yeah, with 12 string, I usually change them 2 at a time. Alot of people don't think it's necessary, but why not. With 12 strings, I definitely tune down...

    I think I am going to order some GHS Silk/Bronze's. Al, I agree GHS does sure have a unique string lineup. It's unfortunate not more of the string types have a 12 string set.

    That said, I just...

    For the Daddarios you switched back to, where they PB's? That said, I agree 80/20's (regardless of make) are definitely brighter. I'm mainly just hoping some 8020's are warmer than others. I've...

    Well, I now have both a rosewood and maple F-512 on hand to try out. I imagine this will turn into at least 4-5 new threads. More soon!

    Dan, thanks again for posting this. I'm checking out F112's, and other guilds right now, and the nut string spacing is a factor I'm looking at. Not easy to find this info otherwise!
