Welcome to the Acoustic Guitar Community.

Hello everyone,

I have tried several different strings on my SWS and still find it some what harsh sounding. Any suggestions on a string to dial down the highs on this guitar? What is everyone else using?

had to ask, sometimes we forget the obvious or overlook I should say. thanks all.

I've only replaced the strings on my 'new' Maritime SWS HG three times, with D'Addario Phospher Bronze each time. I say 'new' because I got the guitar about a year and a half ago. I thought the guitar was a little bright at first, but have come to think of that 'bright' sound as my preferred sound. Perhaps the guitar's ageing also came into play, and the sound may have changed more than my ear.
