HISTORICAL GUITAR AMBRA 900« SETS
(this is the syntetic version of the Gut & Silk 900« set)
Up to the middle of the 20th century, the only available strings for guitar were plain gut for Trebles and silk wound strings for basses: their acoustical performance was quite different from that of modern stringings.
