So, you're looking for just the right amount of tension, and the right amount of tone? Our Light gauge is an excellent choice for most guitarists as it has the perfect balance of low-end and midrange volume, without being too hard on the callouses.
Our Natural Bronze™ alloy is a particular take on Phosphor Bronze, aimed to reveal the authentic, woody characteristics of an acoustic guitar. It's this rich copper alloy that gives these strings a distinctly warm, resonant tone, and also a beautiful rose gold color. As an added bonus, component agents in this alloy make these strings especially resistant to corrosion.
Give your own acoustic the strings it deserves, a set that will bring out its natural character and keep it sounding great for longer. Hit the big blue button below to add these to your cart.

To put it simply, fresh acoustic strings, made with quality materials and genuine care just sound and play better.
- Stringjoy acoustic guitar strings are made by a small team in the USA, out of all American materials: our top quality Natural Bronze™ phosphor bronze alloy, wound around a high carbon hex-core steel wire.
- The combination of better materials and more careful craftsmanship creates a more natural-sounding, longer lasting string, without the tone-deadening effects of string coatings.
- We’re known for our quality control. Our strings are wound in small batches, and we use real human beings at every step of the process: the winding, the coiling, the packing, you name it.
- Every string is inspected individually before it goes into your set. If anything is wrong with a string, from the way it’s secured around the ball end, through the entire winding, it doesn’t make the cut.
What does a higher quality set of acoustic guitar strings mean for you?
✓ Better tuning stability for the life of the string
✓ A brighter, more pronounced sound from the guitar
✓ Longer string life and less breakage, when cared for properly
✓ Smoother, more balanced playability across the neck of the guitar
Our guarantee is what we say it is. If anything does not perform to your satisfaction, return it for a replacement or refund. No hassle, no worries.

“In terms of construction they seemed to surpass most of the other strings I’ve used . . . Tunings also held firmly right out of the gate, lasting several hours of playing on Sunday morning (two church services). Having brand new strings hold a tuning that well isn’t typical.”
“Stringjoy’s custom strings sound and feel like a good set of strings . . . the tone is well balanced and there’s no odd texture or coated feel to the string.”
“Stringjoy is committed to bringing you a high-quality string with a custom, handmade experience.”
“Stringing these up, I immediately liked the feel . . . Good tone, good life and no breakage.”
“High-quality, handmade strings with the added benefit of allowing customers to customize the gauge of each string they order.”
“Hand wound, custom gauge strings for your guitar . . . made just the way you like it . . . so you can shred faces like never before.”
“Low-end really did feel more balanced and the higher end seemed more comfortable to play . . . Overall they seem to be top notch strings.”
“So far, I haven’t had any of the strings break. They sound great, very clear tone…”
“A lot of buyers tend to look for the USA made products, which usually come with the extra quality that the extra checks and balances buys, whether it be a Gibson Les Paul, a Fender MIA strat, or an original NYC Muff. This is where Stringjoy fits in, an American builder in the USA, with all the quality that you can assume comes with that.”
How much does shipping cost?
All US orders ship free, so long as they’re over $8. Alaska and Hawaii too. Simple as that. No tax (except for our fellow TN residents), no extra handling charges, nothing.
We do ship internationally as well, though unfortunately we can’t do it for free. There’s some more info on all that at the bottom of this tab.
How long will it take for my order to ship?
All string and pick orders ship within 2 business days, most within 1 business day (Monday – Friday, minus postal holidays). We want to get your gear out as quickly as possible, but we will not rush the process.
The most important thing to us is that everything in your order is perfect, and that’s why we take the time to put together and inspect each individual order by hand.
Do you ship outside of the US?
We’ll ship most anywhere in the world. Our site will automatically calculate the shipping costs on the checkout page. Typically, when shipping internationally it’s best to order a few things at a time to better spread out the shipping cost over the whole order, rather than paying to ship one set of strings halfway across the world.
Due to the wealth of country tax and tariff codes, any import duties or fees are the responsibility of the purchaser.
International orders can take anywhere from 3-6 weeks to arrive. We will ship every order with a tracking code, but not all countries update the tracking once the package arrives in its destination country. But as always, if you have any trouble with your order, we’re here to help.
