Congrats on the X7 ! Wonderful guitars, I had been using Elixirs too, but a couple weeks ago I put some Magnan lights on just because I had some extras. I am very happy with the results, tone was much improved in my opinion. I have not found a really bad sounding string for the X7 or X20. Some are better than the others, but the Emeralds don't appear to super picky like other guitars i have had.

Hi Mark,
Cleartone EQ lights (12-53). The EQ strings use a different alloy for each wound string. Try them out and let us know how you like them

Congratulations Barb! The X7 is a great guitar - play it in good health.

Curious how you see it comparing tonally to the Savoy? You're one of the few of us with both...

Thanks everyone for the congrats.

Carmel Cedar, the Savoy and the X7 are soooo different that is is like comparing apples and oranges. In their own right each one is a great guitar. The Savoy, for me is the guitar that fits right like in "The Three Bears." I love the Savoy neck and its sound, playability and size. On the other hand I am really enjoying the X7 for it's ergonomics. The X7 is a great, intimate little guitar. I have a feeling that when I go to play out that the Savoy will come with me (at least for the season's first gig).

Barb, when I played a Savoy I got the sense that the upper mids were emphsized. Do you find that the X7 is more balanced across the frequency response spectrum?

D.Hart, I'll have to think about your question when I play them and get back to you.

D.Hart,
I played both of the guitars before and I have to tell you that although I can play them I can't answer your question. My ears don't hear that information. Sorry I can't be of help.
When I have a friend over with skilled hearing I will try to address this.

Hi All,
I had said in an earlier post that I put Cleartone EQ lights (12-53) on the X7 and liked them. I had them on for a week and while I did like the extra bass it gave the guitar I found that they didn't stay in tune well so today I replaced them with Elixir 80/20 medium/lights. I am enjoying the feel and sound of these very much and will probably stick with them for awhile.
Barb
