Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the recommended string gauge for my Yamaha APX600FM acoustic-electric guitar, and which strings should I consider using?

The recommended string gauge for your Yamaha APX600FM acoustic-electric guitar would depend on your playing style and personal preference. However, based on common recommendations for similar guitars in the APX series, a popular option is to use a 12-54 gauge set. This means you would have .012" at the high E string and .054" at the low E string.

Here are some popular string options to consider using:

2. D'Addario EJ45 Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings: EJ45 Phosphor Bronze Light (12-53 gauge) strings are known for their warm, rich tone that is favored by many guitarists.
3. Martin MSP4000 Marquis Auto-Locking Soft Pack Strings: MSP4000 Marquis strings have a unique locking system that allows the string to automatically lock into place once inserted in the tuner post, ensuring accurate and smooth tuning. They also provide a rich, full tone that's perfect for acoustic guitars.

Remember that switching to different gauge strings may affect your playability and tonal quality, so it's always advisable to try out a few options before deciding on the one that suits you best.
