Epiphone EL-00 pro


Recommended Posts

Hello guys , from Italy.

On Saturday I have purchased a second hand Epiphone EL-00 pro in very good condition, seems new!

I need suggest about new string, actually is old and sounds poor.

I think they are 11 gauge . I don’t play an acoustic guitar from along time.

I the past I had used and like Martin 

This is a shape that I never had played before.

What gauge , 11-52 or 12-54. ? Or others?

Martin brands phophore/ bronze , bronze, silk or Monel?

SP , Marquis or Retro ?

I play blues and sometimes strumming

I don’t like too brilliant strings.

What do you suggest ?

Congratulations on the EL-00 Pro.  I think they’re quite fine guitars!  

I like Martin Authentic Acoustic 80/20 Bronze 12s on my EL-00 Pro.  But, lately I’ve been experimenting with Martin Authentic Acoustic 80/20 11s and even 10s on some of my other guitars (and I’m having good results, which surprises me.)

For sure, I don’t think you can go wrong with the 12s.

Thanks 

Generally I had liked Martin phophore bronze over bronze in the past on my acoustic guitar, also much then Elixir that I like on electric.

Some friends suggest Curt Mangan but they are difficult to find in Italy

Upgrade: I have found Curt Mangan in a e-shop in Switzerland 🇨🇭 so I have order there.
