After being handed identical Martin guitars – one with SP Lifespan strings and one without – contestants who correctly determine which was equipped with the SP Lifespan strings will win a free set along with additional prizes.
- “The Great Martin String Swap” will take place at select retailers this summer and fall, during which anyone bringing in their old strings will be provided with a complimentary set of new Martin SP Lifespan strings (while supplies last).
This year’s new string products include:
- SP Lifespan Extra Light Gauge 10-47 Bronze (41MSP6000) and SP Lifespan Extra Light Gauge 10-47 Phosphor Bronze (41MSP7000) – For smaller body guitars and cutaways, a new extra light gauge will be available in phosphor bronze or 80/20 bronze.
