I use mostly .010's but I need the action to be as low as possible without buzzing and dead spots.Which do you like better: guitars that play easily with a slinky feel to the strings, or ones that put up a bit of fight and make you work a bit?
I use just fingers when I play and usually pluck, grab, and thump the strings pretty vigorously. I also use at least 10.5 gauge and sometimes .11 gauge strings, so I gravitate to guitars that put up a little fight.
The whole "butter" thing is overrated, IMHO.
What do you all like?
