I was just wondering, I found a review on a Fender Tele, and someone used the following phrasing, "Setup wasn't perfect (but who uses 9s on a tele anyway?). Did the setup and put on 11s and its spot on now..." Can anyone tell me what 9's and 11's refers to??
String gauges
Fender Precision Bass
Fender Jazz Bass
1967 Fender Coronado Bass II
Warwick Star Bass
Squier Precision Bass TB
The gauge (thickness) of the strings.
Fender '72 Telecaster Deluxe Reissue -> Korg Pitchblack Tuner -> Boss PS-5 -> EHX Big Muff -> MXR EVH Phase 90 -> Menatone Pleasure Trem 5000 -> Line 6 Verbzilla -> MXR Carbon Copy -> Boss RC-2 -> Peavey Classic 50
9s are a light gauge, whereas 11s are considerable heavier. Typically, light strings have reduced tension, making bending easier. On the other hand, many people prefer the thicker tone of higher gauges
