11's are perfect for about everything, but 12's are best because i use Drop A, B, C, D, and standard, and they work for everything, 11's dont go easily into A.

It depends on what you play. Either way it all comes down to personal preference, theres no right or wrong answer.

10's at the moment but they are a bit floppy.

Might change to 11's for my Paul when I get my Tele.

I use 13's



I hate guitars with ultra thin necks and .8 strings, I mean, who gives a sh¡t if you can play 1000 notes per second..

A lot of people who use really thick strings these days are in tunings other than E Standard.

If you're in E Standard tuning I'd use anything from 9-42, 10-46, 11-48, depending on how light you like your strings (easy to bend). Remember, the thinner the string, the more tone you sacrifice. 10-46 is pretty common for E Standard.

If you want to detune, I'd step the high E string up 1 gauge for every step down.

For example, in C Standard (2 full steps down from E), I'd probably use a 12-52 set, since I normally use 10-46 in E Standard.

11-49 for E,, moving to 12's or 13's for e next strings i buy. i play mainly jazz, funk, blues so i need a little more bottom end.

I currently have 10s for my guitar in E standard, but I really want to switch to 11s, or possibly 12s. I'd probably be fond of getting some 12s or 13s for C Standard, if I could.

IF you want faster stumming then loosen your strings, that will force you into using more strength

i dont know about the polarity and ****, but my regular ones just wont go in the hole without a lot of force.

I use 10s or 9s. I just prefer the tone of lighter strings on the higher strings.

At the minute i have 11's on. When i was tuned to eb they seemed really tight and hard to bend. But in in D standard/ drop c now and they seem fine. Usually i use 10's.
