I play the D'Addario 9.5 set on a G&L Legacy that came factory setup for D'Addario 10s. Coming from the 10s it feels for me a little closer to the feel of EB 10s that my MIM Mustang loves and that is a very easy playing guitar. A set of straight 9s might be closer still but would probably need a more complete setup change than the 9.5s did. I have a set of the Balanced Tension 10s I've never tried on anything and a set of EB Turbo Slinkies I had bought to try against my usual hybrid 9-46s on my more aggressive Ibanez but the thought has crossed my mind to try those on the Legacy as well. It has never worn anything but D'Addarios.
