Down to taste I think Martin. When I first built CBGs I used light acoustic strings. They sound great when you string them up but lose their brightness quickly. However I play with a very light touch so I always use electric nickel wound ones now.

Thanks Richey, to me the medium strings for electric that I have been using sound good unplugged, but you know how it goes, always searching for better sounds!
