I recently acquired a 12 string guitar. What kind of strings should I get so the octave higher strings won't break? My electronic tuner is made for a 6 string guitar. Is there a special guitar tuner for a 12 string guitar?

  • The higher octave strings are thinner, to retain about the same tension as the original six. Recommendations are out of the scope of this site. – Tim Aug 15 '18 at 6:02
