80/20 12.5-55
5 Stars

Really kind of a great in between gauge. 12s are slightly too light and 13s too heavy. These worked out great on my 30 year old Guild dreadnaught.

CM 12.5-55 "Half Size" 80/20 Bronze Strings
5 Stars

These strings are absolutely perfect on my 1966 Martin D-18. Standard medium gauge (13-56) string sets were always just a bit too heavy, and light gauge (12-54) sets were always a little floppy. These "Half Size" strings feel just right under my fingers, and the the tone and sustain are excellent. After 53 years I've finally found the right strings!!
