Gauges: 12.5 - 16.5 - 25 - 35 - 45 - 55
80/20 Bronze wound strings are often called old-school, vintage and/or bright bronze and were the most popular (only) alloy used to make acoustic strings until the introduction of phosphor in the early Seventies. 80/20 bronze wire is made from 80 percent copper and 20 percent zinc. 80/20 bronze provides balanced highs and lows with a slight increase in mid-range that seems the make the notes cut-through a little more.

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.
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!!
