Great find.
Hey Hoopsfan, what strings have you found to work best on your LL500? Figured I’d start with EJ16’s and explore from there

Since I have owned this for 20 years, I used ExP17’s mostly but they were discontinued. So EJ 16’s will be good. I have actually converted to Elixir and find they just hit that sweet spot after several weeks, then sound good for months.
This guitar will amaze you with its clarity and overtones.
