Martin MA540S Marquis Silked Phosphor Bronze Authentic Acoustic Guitar Strings Light 12-54
- Next-generation engineering
- Great playability and feel
- Superior reliability and authentic tone
Martin knows a thing or two about creating great tone while protecting the integrity of valuable instruments. If you’re looking for some extra protection for your fine guitar, Authentic Acoustic Silked strings are the right choice for you. They added a soft silk wrap to the ball ends of their Authentic Acoustic strings to prevent wear and tear on the bridge and bridge plate as you play. The silk wrap puts a comforting layer of protection in place every time you change your strings. In addition, we've found that certain guitars with a naturally bright tone enjoy the small layer of added warmth that the silk anchor gives... a certain smoothness is added that's subtle, but welcome. The owner's 1949 Gibson LG-1 is a harsh little blues box, and Marquis are his go-to choice for that particular instrument.
