Does anyone play this guitar? I've had one for about 20 years and I really like it. I'm stil a beginner so it is more than adequate. One question for those playing one, what strings are you using? Both type and tension please.

I've got a CP132S which is basically the same guitar with a pickup. I bought it in a second hand shop 10 or so years ago because I liked the sound of it. I think it's a pretty good guitar for a mass produced instrument and I enjoy playing it. I have it leaned up next to my computer and I use it when I'm doing arrangements or to site read pieces off the computer screen.

I've found it fairly tolerant of different strings; at present it's got some medium tension Savarez Alliance strings on and they sound pretty good.
