10-46 on 72 Thinline 11-49 on AVRI 52
Common for jazz guys, but on archtops. I like the tension.
Ernie Ball Regular Slinky's on all my Telecasters.
The only exception is my Squier J5. For whatever reasons, that guitar plays and sounds best with "Power Slinky's" (11's).
Ernie ball 10´s on my MIM and American Special and 11´s on my AV52
I used 10s for years, but I tried 11s on a whim a couple of months ago and I don't think I'll be able to go back.
I used to use 15-60 on most of my guitars years ago.
11 - 48 Cobalts on my Tele's
All guitars are in regular tuning , all have 10-46 on them
D'Addario: Strat & Tele get 9-42. The Ibanez's get 10-46 or sometimes 10-52.
I tried 10.5-46 for a while, I liked it at first then put regular 10's back on. So, back to GHS Boomers 10-46 on both teles now.
I'd shake your hand but I'm afraid you'd crush it.
"Played with" 9-42 for a while, and went back to 10-46. I also switched from D'Addario to Ernie Balls.
Not that it matters...
Lately it's D'Addario .09 - .46 on the Teles, but I am sure that .10's would sound better.
.10-.46 on the BC Rich and Les Paul, and Gretsches.
Those 10 packs are a very good value. I wish D'Addario would sell 10 packs of 9.5s, but they don't. I figure it's because it's not a commonly used string gauge... Oh well.
15-60? I've never heard strings used that thick on any guitar, let alone an electric. That's crazy!
Might want to suffix the 13-62 gauge entry with "SRV wanna be"
FWIW, I view the string gauges as:
_9 ga = string wiggling/bending players
10 ga = normal 'playing' players
11 ga = rhythm & jazz players
12 ga = heavy jazz & metal players
13 ga = finger masochists
Some archtop string set back in the day had wound B strings!
