GUEST,guitarfixer Nylon strings on a Martin 00016 (6) RE: Nylon strings on a Martin 00016 16 Aug 02

Those Silk and Steel strings are a good recommendation. GHS and John Pearse brands offer Phosphor Bronze wrap and have them in .011" to .049" that will work on the 000-16. Both companies also offer .012 to .052 or .053". Nylon strings require a much higher action than steel, so the lower tension of the bronze or sivered silk and steels should be at least as easy and still move the braced top. BTW, those bronze silk and steels improve the sound of the Formica topped C.F. Martin guitars, the X series.
