Thread Name: I bought the perfect HD28 [Martin]
Subject: RE: I bought the perfect HD28 [Martin]
The bigger guitars like the dreadnoughts are braced strongly enough to use medium gauge strings, and they do sound better with them. D-28s and HD-28s come from the Martin factory with mediums (13s) on. I always use mediums on the HD-28 and it definitely improves the sound over lights.

On the SWJGT and the 00-28, however, I use lights, because those guitars were not built to take mediums.
