Eastman AC630 String choice
#1
I have the recommended 12's on my AC630 Jumbo but I think 13's will make the guitar sound better. Less quacking on the "g" string. I had the guitar plek'd and set up exactly how I like it, but the 12's just seem too light. 

Any thoughts out there?

I've only tried D'Addario XT and XS on mine. They last so long and sound great, that I really haven't experimented much. But I've only used lights on it. It can probably handle 13s but they're not my favorite unless I'm tuning down a half step or to drop D, which I don't do with the jumbo.

If the guitar has scalloped bracing it has been my experience they are made to sound fuller using lighter gauge strings ( typically what they come with) And going to a heavier gauge string would pull the top up as it did on one of mine few years back.

Bringing this back up because D'addario just launched a Light Plus version of their strings that goes 12.5-54 that may be the sweet spot.  I just ordered them for my AC630.  You may want to check them out:  https://www.daddario.com/products/guitar...s-12.5-54/
