I've started playing acoustic guitar a couple of months now very slowly coming along. I just purchased a Washburn HB-35 for a steal, couldn't pass it up. Iwanted to know what are the stock strings on the HB-35 and are there a better replacement set especially for a beginner like myself ( lighter Strings? )

I advise buying 2 sets, a 9 and ten guage then mixing them. IE
a 10 gauge for the high 'e', then two very close guage strings for the b & g, and also having the low e almost as light as the a string.
(use the a string from the heavier set as the e) I find this helps with tuning and gives a smoother sound and feel to everything. Otherwise, there is too much disparity between the strings, xspecially on the low end.

If it's factory strings you want contact Washburn thell tell you what you ned to know...

I like elixer's there not cheap but if you love your guitar.....

D'darrio EXP's are nice.....

Other than that I think you should change your strings often until your happy with a set...

GHS Boomer 10's, would be a good choise.
More tone & less chance of string breakage than 9's.
GHS Boomers are fairly cheap, but give you good value.

After many years of playing Acoustic (my preference) I have found I like the D'Adderio - Phospher Bronze J-16's the best. For my Electrics (I play mostly Light Jazz and Blues on those) I like the D'Adderio w/ a wound third (they finally make a set) I used to just buy a wound third for every set I bought (through Musician's Friend) best prices I've found so far. I have to add that it really depends on the style you play and what tone quality you prefer. JUST KEEP ON PICKIN'
