I am new to the reso world, and also new to forums and posting! I have a new W/S Maple and was looking for string information and recommendations. The useful information I found was spread across several threads. I appreciated both the facts and the opinions I discovered.
I took some notes as I was searching various sources for strings as to gauges, etc. I thought perhaps others might find it helpful to have in one place. I've tried to be objective and state general opinions fairly. Some of the tips at the end I have not seen elsewhere (Fast Fret, Express Shine).
So, if I did this correctly you should be able to find the results attached. If this is useful, it certainly could be expanded with other information useful to Noobs like me. The attached table contains the Brand, Types, Gauges and Street Price along with a few comments.
