I forget what gauge they are (for some reason, I always think of gauge in terms of the lowest string, in whihc case they're .68s), but Elixir make an *awesome* baritone set. Like, that's what they're called. Look them up.

Before I discovered them, I used to use the Zakk Wylde GHS Lo set, and generally sub out what they ,18p G for a .24w D, and use the G for the B, and the B for the E. It ends up with a fairly beefy top, though, so it can be a bit taxing on the fingers, but in B-standard tuning it should be fine.

I've used them both to tune to D-standard, and finally C-standard. Never enjoyed the sound of B, though, don't know why.

Hope that helps.

i thought a baritone guitar was designed so you could play in b standard but still use normal gauge strings?

In theory, the longer the scale, the higher the string tension for any given open string of the same tuning.10's on a 27 inch scale should be a fair bit more taught than on a Strat, & more again than a Les Paul.

they might be 9s. but they are really loose on this thing in e standard.
