SJ-100 1941 Factory String Gauge

Recommended Posts

Question to the experts - which strings did. Gibson use for the SJ-100 1941 model? My guitar was built in 2013.

Light or medium strings? I have Gibson Light Phosphor Bronze in the SJ at the moment but it feels as if mediums could work, too.

This is from the Musician's Friend page on that guitar:

  • Strings: .012" - .052" Gibson Light Guage

(They misspelled gauge but probably have it right that it shipped with lights, you could try mediums, you might like it. the guitar can certainly handle it)

Thank you for the  information! Will try Mediums for the next string change.

Maybe I am too carefull to use 13s on Gibson acoustics, as my Martin dreadnoughts seem to be more ‚robust‘ but I have much more Gibsons 😉 as I am fascinated by them.

I've kind of settled on mediums for my J-45 and i've been keeping lights on my 200 but i might switch it up again next time i change strings.

enjoy! that's a beautiful guitar you have

It is - and no one knows it as most of the "normal" guitar pickers over in Europe who had ever a Gibson acoustic in their hands know J45s - which can be seen a lot in TV music shows, Hummingbirds - at least the older guys and Rolling Stones fans and SJ-200s - because they can´t be missed optically.

I am glad to find it in an music store. It Looks a little like the "big brother" of my J35  [rolleyes]
