It’s the original bridge. I use D’Addario phosphor bronze medium gauge strings.
The bridge looks newer somehow. You take damn good care of it. I see it is the long glued in saddle.

Those are the strings I use on my 2015 HD-28. I was curious, thinking you'd go down a gauge or two due to the age.

Magnificent example you have there! You know how I love a Martin!

Oh man, I am DROOLING! What a guitar! Wish I could hear it live, not a recording- there is something about the way the air moves with those old Martins that can’t quite be captured with recording equipment. Outstanding guitar!
