The Godin guitar came with 12s. They sounded great acoustically but were a bear to bend. Yeah…I know – it’s a jazz guitar – stop being a wimp. Anyway, Guitar Center was blowing out Cleartone stings and I picked up an 11 gauge pack. In short – I like them! I’ve used Elixers in the past and while they do last a long time, you really feel the coating. The Cleartone strings feel normal to me. (Kudos – they also came in an eco-friendly package)
The 11s feel perfect on the Godin – not quite as acoustically loud but will be much nicer to play.
