    Sadly, I’m not a strings expert. If I was, there’d be a whole article about strings. I tend to stick to nickel plated round wound. I mostly use D’Addarios. I suspect most of the major manufacturers are good enough quality whereas some of the cheap strings certainly aren’t.

    D’Addario produce the gauges I want to use, 10’s, 10.5’s and 11’s depending on scale length. I get similar tension on all my guitars, plenty of mass and good tone.

    The naturally sonic “booster” of a guitar are the nut and the bridge. Change the nut from plastic to bone change the sound dramatically. And btw, it´s the budget upgrade for an instrument…
    A plus can (no – must) be a upgrade of bridge and saddles.
