I know what strings I like on rosewood and mahogany, but not an L-03 Maple. Any one have any suggestions based on personal experience? I was thinking Curt Mangan lights...either PB or 8/20's...or DR Sunbeams? Need to order them.
Thanks

I had already ordered strings when I received all of the advice on strings for this L. Ordered 2 sets to try. Both are Curt Mangan strings, lights. One is the 80/20 and the other are PB's. Well, I strung the guitar with the 80/20's last evening. I am not sure if I like them...way too bright! I don't know if they will settle in (and settle down) enough for my tastes. I hope the PB's are less bright (fingers crossed) on this guitar. I mean, the guitar has this other wordly sound, as though the strings are somehow amplifying every movement on them. It sounds "okay" strummed. But not fingerstyle.
I think I will be ordering again sooner rather than later. This time getting what has been recommended.

I use the Mangans, 80/20's on the hogtop and PB's on the spruce. Maple is bright to begin with, try the PB's before you order more strings.
