In the Twenties and Thirties, the 12-string guitar was popular with Delta Blues players especially “Lead Belly“. The 710-12H set is specifically made for C tuning used by ‘Leadbelly’ & Pete Seeger — La Bella Endorsee.

As apart of La Bella’s Silk & Steel series, these sets are made with silver-plated copper wire, hand-wound over a middle layer of pure Italian silk filament and an inner steel core. Preferred by finger-style guitarists for their soft touch and sweet tone, these strings have less tension than standard steel, bronze or brass wound strings.

  • Soft touch and sweet tone
  • Tension: Heavy
  • Tuning: Low-C-tuning
  • Made in the USA with American Wire
  • Packaged using MAP Technology (Modified Atmosphere Packaging) to prevent tarnishing and ensure freshness

SKU: LB71012H
