I recently bought a Gibson J-45 which has such a warm tone - I love it! I just replaced the stock strings (which I think are Gibson PB lights) with my all time favorite John Pierce PB lights. I've been using the John Pierce PBs for years on my Taylor 810 and have always loved them but I really don't like them at all on the J-45. They sound way too bright and the guitar just doesn't have the same warm tone. I know that new strings will sound brighter but I just don't think these strings sound anywhere near as good as the stock Gibson strings. Just wondering for those of you who have a J-45 what you've found to be the best string and gauge for that guitar? I never thought I'd suspect that a particular string would sound great on one guitar but not so great on another. :NUTS I appreciate any recommendations you might have!
