Overall Comments

MARTIN'S NEW MONTEL RETRO STRINGS.  I BOUGHT A CHEAPER ALVAREZ GUITAR [ARD-70 12 FRET] AND SINCE IT WAS A RETRO GUITAR- I TRIED THE NEW VERSION OF MARTIN'S RETRO STRINGS.  WHAT A DIFFERENCE THEY MADE-  BIG.BASSEY, BOOMEY- THEY MADE THE GUITAR SOUND LIKE ONE AT A MUCH HIGHER PRICE.  I CHOSE THE LIGHTS [12-54- THEY MAKE THREE OTHER SIZES FOR 6 STRING GUITAR] I  DIDN'T WANT TO OVERSTRESS THE GUITAR.THEY WERE SO GOOD I GOT ANOTHER SET [ SAME LIGHTS] FOR MY HAND MADE DREADNAUGHT.  THEY ALSO SOUNDED GREAT- BIGGER- BOOMEY;.I HAD PHOSPHER BRONZE LIGHTS ON BEFORE [ MARTINS] BUT THESE MONTEL WERE SO MUCH BIGGER.  IF YOUR GUITAR SOUNDS A LITTLE WEAK- I RECOMMEND THESE STRINGS HIGHLY.
