Thread Name: Best guitar strings for a small guitar?
Subject: RE: Best guitar strings for a small guitar?
Speaking of not putting heavier-than-recommended strings on a small guitar: I've got my mother's Guild F-30, which isn't even that small but is smaller than a dreadnought, and I cannot put anything heavier than medium lights on it. I literally cannot tune it up. Even medium-lights are VERY tight; not enough to hurt the instrument but enough to cause the player some grief. Lights definitely make it happiest.
