Guys, I just accidently broke all my strings on the Yamaha Pacifica 812v. I mean I cant put them back on. Anyways, what are some strings that are good, I'm a beginner and bad stuff already happend :S. The strings on the Yamaha were the ones from the factory. (Play any kind of music, just not trash metal/hardcore things) Thanks

I like Earny Ball 10s. 10 is the gauge, Earny Ball is the manufacturer.

DR extra, cause of the durability, and the like 7 colours. Blue, green, and red strings are interesting.

Factory setup usually are .009 or .010 strings, so most likely they will be the same size.

10's are fine for a beginner, it may hurt your fingertips a bit at start but as he is just starting out why not go straight for 10's? And he might not break them all at once?

Ok I'm getting Ernie Ball 0.10 this afternoon but should I let the people at the store set it up for me or should I do it myself? I know how to by just watching 1 video and reading some things off the internet. My guitar has like a locking tuner thing tho.

Oh while I'm there I need a pick as well, probably atleast 5. What are some good sizes and I mean in numbers. Thanks
#17
Good pick sizes to start out with are 0.73 mm or even 0.60 mm, as you improve playing you will probably go for thicker sizes like 0.88 mm or 1 mm.

If your not sure about restringing, let the guy from the shop do it. If he's a guitartech, let him check the setup as well.

I don't know if it's acoustic or electric, but Ernie Balls are great strings.

For acoustic I recommend Earth woods (I think that's it), and for electric I recommend Slinky's.
All types of Ernie Ball strings of course.
