Light - 11, 15, 24w, 29, 38, 46
Silver plated copper
Red silk winding
Manufactured by Guadalupe Custom Strings in Los Angeles.
Light gauge strings usually sound best on long scale Selmer style guitars (670mm or longer) with higher action.
Pros: great sound, long life
I've played Guadalupes for 7 years at this writing. They are more expensive than other strings, but better made, and they have a much longer life than other strings. I play a lot (several nights a week,, plus regular gigs) and I change these strings only 3 or 4 times a year.

Lots of volume!
Great strings, lots of volume and tone. Like Argentines on steroids! The only backdraw is that the windings came off the g string after only a couple of days of moderate playing.

Go with argentines.
I bought a few sets of these strings as a treat for my new alta mira guitar. What a waste of money (SORRY MICHAEL)... First of all, argentines are brighter which basically discounts the main selling point of these strings. In addition, the G string went completely DEAD in 1 day, so I switched it out with the G from another set of the same 'manouche tone' strings I had bought. That G lasted about 2 days before going completely dead. Don't waste your money, stick with argentines. Cheers and sorry to have to make a negative review !
