Great string, wrong tension.
June 1, 2020
I recently purchased a baritone acoustic guitar from Ibanez. I had it professionally set up and had the saddle lowered for better action. When I put my initial set of guitar strings on the guitar, the gauge was 15 to 68. This was optimum for the tension and pressure needed for the bridge pick up to actually get sound to an amplifier evenly.

When I saw that there was a lighter gauge baritone string from the same company, I thought that might be easier on my fingers in general. To my dismay, and because of the recent set up and bridge reduction, not all of the toner qualities were able to come out with the lighter gauge strings because of the lack of pressure that it was initially set up for.

To my dismay, and because of the recent set up and bridge reduction, not all of the tonal qualities were able to come out with the lighter gauge string because of the lack of pressure that it was initially set up for.

I contacted just strings.com in order to see if I could get a refund or credit to purchase the right gauge strings from the same manufacturer and they said that even though the package was sealed, they had a 30 day return policy that was strict. So I decided to contact the manufacturer directly and he took care of my needs.

I would caution anyone that has a baritone acoustic guitar to take this morning into consideration when choosing your perfect string gauge. Make sure that you stick with it after you get the guitar set up or review the manufacturers suggestions accordingly.

As for continuing to work with just strings.com, I will most likely be taking my business elsewhere given that most other manufacturers in the business lifted a 30 day ban for returns given the Covid stay at home orders, as they obviously showed inflexibility to work with their customers.
ProsNice brightness to the string in general, and very soft on the fingers.
ConsIncorrect gauges might change the guitar?s output through the pickup system.

I have a Taylor 410e baritone I purchased used that came with 70-17 stings. It sounded great that way and was very loud with a thumb pick. C is a better key for me vocally so I decided to purchase these strings and give them a go. Wow! The sound is much more detailed and balanced with luscious over tones and harmonics. This string gauge is much easier to play. Highly recommended!
ProsDetailed sound Luscious over tones Very balanced Easy to play
ConsNone

Best So Far for Taylor

The Elixer baritone strings that were stock and recommended for my 35th anniversary baritone were not well suited for this instrument. I confirmed that with a new set. Since then, I have tried over a dozen strings gauges and brands at different tuning / tensions. With a 27" scale, I found 13-56's work well tuned at a D standard. Since I do not use open alternate tunings, and still wanted to voice this guitar lower, I thought these 15-62's looked evenly balanced. They are a bit loose tuned to B, but do work well at C or C#. I am pleased with the overall feel and tone of the strings.

John PearseÒ Strings

"English studio musician John Pearse first began researching into music string manufacture in the mid-sixties. The first person, ever, to teach guitar on television - his BBC lessons have been seen in six countries while his PBS series, STRINGALONG, was shown in most US television markets whilst becoming perhaps the best selling video guitar course both nationally and internationally. He is the author of some forty books on such diverse subjects as instrument building and technique- to cooking and the traditional art of fly fishing! In 1965 John began his collaboration with British Music Strings, a London string maker, to develop a guitar string with both a longer life and a more accurate vibrating and nodal pattern. His designs were so successful that, over the years, both British Music Strings and Thomastik marketed strings under his name. John also designed string lines for Bourne Guitars and Jay Associates, makers of the Jester guitar line.

In 1978 he came to the United States to develop a unique line of accessories for the C.F.Martin Company. It was here that he again met dulcimist Mary Faith Rhoads. After eighteen months, he decided to leave Martin, and, with Mary Faith, started Breezy Ridge Instruments to produce the Breezy Ridge Hammer Dulcimer. His revolutionary design proved itself to be the best sounding Hammer Dulcimer ever made. Next came a line of music strings designed especially for the professional musician. Within months, word of these exciting strings had spread across the country and pressure from both the public and beleaguered dealers had persuaded John and Mary Faith to make their line available to stores and things have just kept growing since then!"
