Hi, I'm gonna try the 11 string gauge to compare acoustic sounds but I wonder if there is a type of strings or brand the piezzo may prefer to be a jack of all trade in all models.

 

thanks

For me the best strings to get that middle point between acoustic and electric feel and tone are the D'Addario XL115W.

They have a wound G or 3rd string for those with altered tunings.  They last well, and have been consistent in quality.

 

Guages: .011, .014, .021w, .028w, .038w, .049w

 

My 2 cents.

Did you have any trouble putting these strings on the jtv, was it a jtv69. I would like to try them on my jtv69 but wondering if there would be any problem with them fitting in the nut,thanks for your help  cal.

Exactly the ones I use for a better acoustic "feel" with the wound 3rd.

I use earnieball 0.11, and I find them MUCH better at sustain, tone, intonation, bends, than the standard 0.10s

 

I owned a fender acoustasonic tele before, and it had as standard 0.11s with a wound G for better acoustic sounds/feel, and it seemed to work, but so far I'm sticking with the non-wound G on my JTV...

 

I'd definitely recommend going to 0.11s anyhow
