Manouche Guitars 'Moreno' Modele Jazz Serial No.116

Sadly I have to sell my Manouche Guitars 'Moreno' Modele Jazz, Serial No.116. It's virtually pristine with a few minor dinks.

String Tension

Are the 'recognised' GJ strings all more or less the same tension or are some 'slacker' than others.

Or can anyone recommend lower tension strings that might work on a Selmac?
