I think you are right Steve.

I have learnt over time that I prefer very light strings. Flexible round core nickels, 11-50. This has been a gradual change from playing with 13s, 12s, to 11s, and then to even more flexible 11s with lower overall gauges. This will be why I'm noticing it now.

This presents me with a dilemma as I love this guitar. Do I buy thicker strings or do I buy another guitar that bonds better with flexible and lighter strings...

I think really I should also look at my technique, I can be very heavy handed (which would work better with thick gauges anyway).

Let's try some new strings then! (I'm sure some people here would love the relief of this guitar - all you thick string lovers).
Guitar: Camps Primera Negra A (a flamenco guitar)
Strings: Aquila Rubino, Knobloch CX, Aquila Alchemia
I play: Acoustic blues & folk
