Cantiga, Wolverton, Rubner

Post by LarryATahoe » Sat Jan 12, 2019 9:30 pm

I wasted a lot of time and money trying different strings on my beautiful Wolverton lattice guitar. In the end the only strings that bring out the full potential of the guitar are the ones the luthier recommended - Cantiga normal tension. So if a luthier designs for certain strings it might be best to just go with them. I had to take off the Scheller tuners I had as they are going to another guitar. Rubner frictionless provided a great tuner for a low price. I'm not a fan of ornate tuners so I just got the lowest price frictionless Rubners. They are excellent tuners although not in the same league as Schellers.

Cantigua is a bass string set. What is the treble that Jason prefers along with it?

I use the Savarez 510AR set that comes with Alliance normal tension trebles. That's what was on the guitar when I got it. 510AR is definitely my choice for this guitar although I haven't yet tried the Savarez Premium set.
