NYXL 11-49 on my two Teles.
Thomastik FW 12-50 on my Jazzmaster.
I rarely detune, so that's not a factor for me. I use 10-46 roundwounds on everything (D'Addario EXL110) except the jazzbox hollowbody gets 11-50 flatwounds (ECG24) and baritones get 14-68 rounds (EXL157).
Mainly I like buying mainly just one gauge of strings so I can get quantity discounts. With ten guitars, strings become on on going cost. At least those expensive flatwounds last 'forever.'
I've been intrigued with the response of the 11-50s on the hollowbody, those strings alone make it a different animal from all my other guitars. I might experiment with a bigger gauge on another guitar.
Play 10's currently and started off playing 12 gauge but those were rough on my fingers so I dropped down to 7 and 8 gauge for the BG approach. Feel like I might go back to 12's or try 13's.
for you guys using 10-52s, did you have to file the nut any? I'm thinking about trying some.
I had a Charvel a few years ago I set up with 10-52s and I had to have the nut filed a little bit, that was a mim guitar though and the setup wasn't too great to begin with. I think most of the time you can get away with a 52 w/o any work done. You'll know if you have an issue the first time you play it! Put 10-52s on a les paul once w/o any work and it was actually an improvement at the time IMO. Give it a shot brotha!
10-46 on Fenders. Thinking of going to 10-52, though (what I use on Gibby scale length)
9-46 and 10-46 NYXL strings all day everyday!
I got an Echoplex pedal recently and it makes my guitar sound like it has thicker strings
DR pure blues 11s. Been wanting to try the EB paradigm set, but they’re darn expensive so I have not yet managed to pull the trigger
11 - 49 on Fender length guitars.
10-46 on my SG, 2 Les Pauls, 2 Teles. 11-50 on my Strat and ES-175.
Mainly .010's and .011"s on electrics and .012" on Acoustic. I play all tuned mainly to std.
concert tuning except occasional D, G or E tuning on the acoustic.
I have used D'Addario Nickel Wound 10-49s on one Tele and D'Addario 11-49s on another Tele. Just today I switched to the same Diaddario Nickel Wound 10-49 (EJ20) on both.
After having my Tele strung with a .009-.040 set for the better part of a year, I put on a .010-.046 set last night. It's like coming back home again. The additional resistance feels right.
I have three electrics: Tele, Strat, and Casino. Now they all have the same strings: D'Addario Balanced Tension .010-.046.
I use D'Addario 11-46 Chromes on my '72 deluxe reissue.
Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinkies on the Esquire
DAD EXL 120+ on the '52 RI Tele
Various DAD's on other guitars. EXL 110's on Gibson scale guitars, EXL 120+ on Fender scale. Heavier strings on the Gretsch, DAD EXL 115. EXL 125 on the MIM Strat.
.10-.46 for Fender scale and .11-50 for Gibson scale. If I'm tuning down on a Fender scale I'll put .11-.50's on it.
For my Gretsch G5620-TCB I use Elixir Nano Heavies, .012-.052. For different acoustic-electric guitars I like Elixir Light Nanos (.012-.053) up to Elixir Medium Nanos (.013-.056), depending on the guitar. I'm kinda stuck with coated strings cause I have toxic hands.
Telecaster: DR Pure Blues 11-50
11's for all.Slinky or d'addario.better at all.
