I use 10’s on the American Standards and 11’s on the Classic vibe.
9-46 for me, Tele and Strat.
I currently use .011s on just about everything, but I'm thinking of going up to .012s on my Tele. Anyone else doing that with standard tuning?
Yes . D'Addario 10-46. Since 1980.
Have you checked Warmoth. they make conversion necks starting at $157( unfinished). slap on a few coats of Tru-Oil, screw it on, and you're good to go.
9's on all my electrics, makes things simpler.
10-46 on all my electrics. I dropped down from 11's some years back.
Hope I never need lighter gauge than 10's. Guitars with 9's or 8's feel pretty squirrelly to me. Kind of like switching from my old truck to a vehicle with modern power steering.
I acknowledge that you’re looking for advice, and this is a fantastic forum to do so...but so much of “tone” is your hands channeling your style and choices - strings and frets and picks are all part of the player to guitar connection, and subjective.
every forum member may have a completely different palette of experiences that help them paint what they hear inside their heads -
my less-than-sage advice is to try as many different strings as you can stand. Try coated and non coated, round and flat, different alloys and blends, and for certain, try different gauges! You’ll learn in the process, you’ll have fun, and you’ll expand your horizons!
that said, I found what I liked, and use the same gauge and brand on every electric guitar that I own.
Currently I prefer S.I.T. Power Wound 12-52 with a wound 3rd. Some say the S.I.T. strings don't last very long, but I am having great results.
Yes, 11s with a wound G.
10 to 46 on almost everything. Strats, tele's, les pauls. 11s on the jazzmaster and 13s on my slide (only) strats.
