Is there such a thing?
I've tried a few but they are very hard/heavy to play fast runs on
When listening to this one i supect he has one that at least is easier than a "standard" one
Sounds like steel to me but I could be wrongIsn't that a nylon string acoustic electric.....like a classical sound? Ritchie anyway, not the other guy.....
I've never seen a guitar with steel strings and that kind of open headstock with the classical style tuners.....
I think you are on to something.The string gauge is the biggest difference for me. If you put 9s or 10s on a thinner bodied acoustic with a cutaway, that’s about as good as it gets as far as ease of playing. But you sacrifice other things when you get the easier handling/playing.
Bigger body will give a fuller sound, and so will 11s or 12s on acoustic.
But as always, it’s the notes that you play, that really matter.
This^^^ 10-50s and a double compensated saddle will get you there.Most steel string acoustics come stock with 12s, these days. "Medium" acoustic strings means 13s.
That guitar sounds like nylon strings to me, looks like it too. Nylons through an undersaddle piezo. I've got a set of D'Addario EJ45 classical strings here on my desk, 85.85 lbs tension for the set. That's real close to the same tension you'll find in a set of 9s.
An acoustic guitar gets its volume from the weight of the strings driving the soundboard. Lighter strings will mean softer volume, and the timbre may change somewhat as well. Maybe in ways you like, who knows?
There is absolutely no reason you can't set up an acoustic for lighter strings. You probably can't go lighter than 10s if you want to keep the wound G string. If you care about intonation, switching from a wound G to a plain one will require saddle adjustment.
Yep 10s or 11s on acoustic would be considered light.I think you are on to something.
I play 9 gauges on my Strats and changing to 10 is a disaster for me.
Perhaps the standard on an acoustic is 10 or 11?
