    So G3 C3 E3 A3

    Hmm, I think you're gonna have to combine stock sets to get all the strings you need.

    Terz guilele tuning is G2 C3 F3 Bb3 D4 G4 and that should be doable with most standard classical guitar sets.
    Several of those are really close so you might need two sets to get the right gauges.

    Another option is standard baritone sets are D3 G3 B3 E4. Rearrange the bottom three and you're close but then you'll need an extra to get the E3

    Thank you
    Yes G3 C3 E3 A3 is what i am looking for

    There is one more thing i am not sure about

    Dont i have to worry ab out the tracktion? And/Or The length of the String?
    Is the tracktion always the same on a string if its made for a special tone?
    For example, to get G3 can i take any string (never mind the instrument wich its made for) wich is made to be tuned to G3?
    I just dont want to "brake the neck" :-)

    Pretty sure that set is linear but the G3 should be one of the easier ones to find so that could be a better starting point than the DGBE set idea

    You can also ask Ken Middleton of Living Waters.

    He MIGHT be able to put together a custom set for you.

    I'm crazy for his strings, they are just wonderful.

    I like Living Water too, but that C3 is not going to work well with unwound flourocarbon
