I tried switching up things and went to lighter gauge strings. CB GITTY acoustic/med 13p. 17p.26w. I tune GDG. I use a scale lenght of 25 and 25.5. The 13 gauge cant get to G without breaking. I normally use 22,30 48 all wound.I 've never had luck with the lighter gauges.I usually buy an extra/light acoustic set and use the 3rd,4th and 5th string. I tried to go light to get a different sound but it doesnt seem to work.
