Default Martin Monel MM13's

A few days ago I put a set of Martin monel 13s on my Godin Jazz Model 5th Avenue archtop.

This model has a floating pickup. It has laminated maple throughout.

To my (old) ears, the monel "retro" medium gauge strings really make the Godin sound great. I play it primarily acoustically so roundwound strings are the way to go.

Although it will never sound as sweet and powerful as my '39 Gibson L50, the Godin is darn nice with these strings.

That's the set I put on my Epiphone Olympic reissue, and they have a great tone!
