Decided to give some love to my rather neglected Blueridge BR60 dreadnought acoustic guitar today. I never really bonded with this guitar somehow, but maybe I should have put a bit more effort into the relationship ...
So have done a fret level and dress, which has got rid of an annoying slight buzz on the high E first fret. Filed down the saddle base a little, which has dropped the action a bit with no obvious ill effects, applied almond oil to the fretboard, and just a general setup and restrung with a set of 11s 80:20 bronze strings.
Also I've ordered this set of bone nut, compensated saddle and bridge pins on ebay, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-Set-Acoustic...=item3f0c56b0fc which will hopefully improve the tone over the plastic ones fitted now, but that is work for later at this stage.
Having played the 11s for a while, I find them not bad, but a little light in tone somehow - so I've just ordered 3 sets of 13s (13-56) bronze strings on ebay... Hope I don't live to regret that lol, just thought I'd go all out for tone, and see if my fingers can cope. Time will tell, but interested to know others experience and thoughts regarding acoustic guitar strings, types, gauges etc. Cheers guys!
