For some reason I have overlooked the Luthier Popular Supreme 20 set for my Navarro Rodriguez Cedar...It is really true, that each instrument, player and string combination (tension, type and brand) will be different.
I am rediscovering this as I start with a new guitar, my first luthier-built guitar. I've had it for just a short time, and have already tried 4 different sets of strings, 2 of which were very good, and the other two...well, one was less than inspiring, and the other was just plain awful...
the Rotosound sounded terrible, but they sounded great before, when I had them on my Ramirez.
I have a couple sets of the Popular set 20 in my string box, and also set 30. I will get around to trying them eventually, in a couple of weeks of they dull out and 3 to 4 weeks if they don't. I did get one set of popular set 20 that had intonation problems with the B string. In the last 30 years, I've only had two or three bad strings, of any type, and I suppose that it just happens once in awhile.
