Question Best strings for electric hollow body (Gibson ES-335)?

I currently use:

D'Addario EXL110 Nickel Regular Light
Gauges 10-13-17-26-36-46

A couple of people actually recommended a heavier gauge for this guitar. I'm unsure how heavy to go and what brand would be best. I have and still use these strings on all of my other guitars for years and I know I like them!

Any recommendations?? Thanks!

electric hollowbodies sound good with .11's or .12's
i'd go with .11's first, unless you want to rip up your fingers completely in the first few days
and then if you like, swap up to .12's later
