    My Guitar

    My guitar :

    Signature Jumbo with an inbuilt pickup.
    Rosewood Fretboard

    Sounds Ok,, probably because I have use Karuna Strings. I will put in original Gibson strings next time.

    Hey jay...

    and somewhere else u gave the gauges also..
    am not able to find out that..
    can u give that again..

    Ok.. Here goes the guages i prefer for leads and rhythm..
    .32 .28 .26 .14 .10 .08 ..

    Try it out once and see if you like the sound Use the Electric strings else Switch back to Acoustic strings..

    If you dont get the .08, go for .11 and .10 or .11 and .09 combination for the last two strings..

    Wow....8s on a acoustic!??!

    Hmmmm...thin strings on an acoustic = less tone

    I would reccomend heavy strings on acoustics, 11-52 are pretty good, they give a bigger and better sound to them than a pack of 9s or 8s.

    Here are a couple of links to good acoustic strings

    Dean Markley

    Ernie Ball

    they give a good tone but arn't as warm as the original vinci strings which were pre-installed but then they were so heavy(maybe .12 or .13)that my fingers looked like sausages after 1 hr practice so i got them changed.(i used peavy before, also a good buy)
