    I just purchased a washburn ab10 and it needs a new set of strings. I just started playing so my knowledge is minimal. Im looking to play it more as an acoustic and i like classic rock blues and bluegrass. Can anyone help?

    Get some Nylon tapewounds. I have a set of status tapes on my AB20 and the sound great. You can get a good almost woody thump.

    Light flats...Fender 9050s in 40-95 gauge come to mind.

    Careful with some of the flats. They can have a pretty high tension and sometimes those washburns don't like that.
