I had the good fortune of being given an old, but good quality classical guitar from a friend of mine. The body work was a bit of a mess but I managed to clean it up and decided to restring it with Savarez T50R Tomatito strings. Wow, the quality of sound went up ten fold. In fact, I was so impressed with the quality of these strings I bought a second set for my much younger guitar and noticed the difference with that one as well. It pays to buy the best, and I think these strings are the best. Try them.
