SP FLEXIBLE CORE strings are actually not new. They used to be called “FX”. This product is actually built using our unique SP Core wire so we renamed them to bring them into the product family where they belong. SP Flexible Core strings have a thinner core wire and a thicker wrap wire making them flexible and easy on the fingers. These strings are great for experienced fingerstyle players like Tommy Emmanuel and also great for beginners because they are easier on the fingers.

Tell us about the new LJ’s Choice. What makes it different?

LJ’s Choice is part of our new RETRO product line, which is made of a nickel/copper alloy blend. Retros are known for their warm, natural tone - the voice of your guitar. We worked with the incredibly talented Laurence Juber, guitar player for the band “Wings” with Paul McCartney, to develop these strings to his preferred playing style. They are a Medium/Light gauge (13-56) with the middle four strings being lighter than a typical “Medium” gauge.
