String advice

Recommended Posts

Hello. I recently received a 1951 L4C and i would like to get the best possible strings for it. I know little about that style of guitar were as i played mostly solid bodied electrics and flat top acoustics. This is a heirloom that was past to me from my father. 

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

That's a pretty cool old girl

Agree w/trying a set of flat wounds.   Pretty much the go to style of string for an archtop/hollow body.  Nothing too exotic needed,  D'Addario Chromes will suit you just fine.  I like those.  I use 11s  you may want something beefier if you have big hands, which I don't

I'll chime in as agree too. Flatwound 11's are an ideal place to start. 

That's a tidy looking guitar; a proper old girl. I hope you bond with it.

That's stunning.[love]

I'd like a good go on it!

Another vote from me for the flatwound 11s.  Just the job!
