I've had my Ibanez Artist ART100 for about a year now, and I'm yet to change the strings. I want change them next week though, and I'm clueless as to which to buy. The ones it came with are pretty good, but I don't know what they are.

Which strings goes GG&A suggest for me? I play basically whatever, anything from Jack Johnson to Black Sabbath. Mostly Rock though, some metal (like RATM). I have an acoustic though so I'm not too worried about it sounding good with the Jack Johnson sort of music.

edit: also, any advice on what to buy to clean the guitar itself?

one year?? dang you need to change them like monthly if not more often.

But i recommend Ernie Ball slinkys. Good for almost anything

Yea, I know you're supposed to change them no less than once every 3 months, but I don't normally.

Do you mean these (the pink one): http://www.guitarcenter.com/Ernie-Ball-2250-Classic-Pure-Nickel-Power-Slinky-Electric-Guitar-Strings-100634-i1122291.gc

Went to GC and narrowed it down to all the Ernie Ball strings: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Guitar-Strings-Strings1,Page-1.gc?src=ernie+ball&ipp=15

Also, I've seen Dunlop 11's at my music shop, looked on GC and not exactly easy if you don't know what you're looking at: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Guitar-Strings-Strings1.gc
