Wow - I just love playing the SP Custom Light Martin strings. The sound is so bright and clean. If you like playing with Light strings give the "custom Light" a try. I have been sticking with these over the "Light" SP from Martin.

I put these on my GS Mini to replace stock mediums. These 11s felt worse than the stock medium strings. They deadened the sound and murdered my finger tips. I don't see how anyone can like the Acoustic SPs. I recommend paying a little more and getting higher quality strings.

No more buzz

By The Jimmer

from Mishawaka, IN

Comments about Martin MSP4050 SP Phosphor Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

The only kind of strings I ever put on my Martin d-15 are Martin SP custom lights. I tryed lights before but because my action is set so low I couldn't avoid the fret buzz. So I tryed custom lights and they play like light strings but don't buzz at all. Since the first time I used them three years ago I have never used anything else.

Nice sound but short life

By Makaha Mike

from Long Beach, WA

Comments about Martin MSP4050 SP Phosphor Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I put these on my Takamine and they sounded great initially. After about 8-10 hours of play. the D and G strings dropped their tonal quality. If you don't mind restringing often, they're great.

Amazing.

By Matt Miller

from Georgia

Comments about Martin MSP4050 SP Phosphor Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I usually buy the light variety of this same string, but my local music shop was out of stock. That being the case I bought these assuming there would be only minor difference between the two. That was indeed the case; this variety of string in comparison was very light to the touch and enabled my playing to carry all the strength and beauty of martin sp lights with an unnoticeable change in volume and lighter feeling action. congratulations martin strings, you make me fall in love with my guitar all over again every time I buy you.

        Comments about Martin MSP4050 SP Phosphor Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        I replaced the original strings on my Fender CD140SCE acoustic-electric guitar and the sound improvement is simply amazing. The sound is much more warm, rich and full. Very nice bass end and warm (not tinny) high end. The strings are easy on my fingers and increased the fun of playing an already exceptionally fun, great sounding and comfortable guitar. I Haven't had them long enough to know about their durability, but these are definitely worth replacing a little more frequently, if necessary. I plan to put these on my Ibanez AEL20 acoustic-electric when it's time to change those strings.
