Anybody try Monel strings on their J-35ís? At least Those that feel the guitar actually lives up to Gibsonís standards. :rolleyes:
Cheers,
Ken

Been using them on my J-35 since last summer. Love them. They take a day or two to settle in, but boy howdy, once they do, I really love the tone, volume and feel.

Finally put some Monels on my J-35. Martin Retro light gauge.
Day two and my impressions are very favourable. Nice percussive woody sound while still maintaining good note separation .
So, Phosphor Bronze were good. 80-20ís died way too soon . ( IMO) Weíll see how these Monelís sound and feel after prolonged use.
Cheers,
Ken

I just sold my '14 J35 and will be buying a J35 Fuller's next week. My 2014 was very much up to the Gibson standards in tone and workmanship. I only sold it to get to a larger profile neck with a wider nut width.

My preferred string set on this slope shoulder was Martin Monel light gauge. I also liked DR Rare Bluegrass 12-56, especially after they were old and going dead and starting to get thumpy.
