Hey guys. Does someone know what gauge strings usually come on Epiphone LPs? And what gauge would be best for a late 70s to late 80s sound? Something that would cover most from ZZ Top, GNR, Lynyrd Skynyrd etc. Im running Ernie Ball Power Slinky on my Sg because I found they sound best for AC/DC (Im in a tribute band.) And I really dont feel like wasting money and doing a whole trial and error over again for my LP. Thanks Guys!

gauge: probably .10's.
sound: any gauge.

usually they come with 10-46s. IDK I like a largish string gauge. It is usually a preference.

For 70's and 80's I use EB Hybrid Slinky's and I love 'em

gives me a bolder, cleaner bottom but I can still bend when I need to...

As far as what came on an SG, Like banjocal said... probably 10's

The sound is more dependent on your amp and guitar.
What do you get if you drop a piano down a mineshaft?

I used the same guitar and amp settings when I did the trial and error and I did hear a different sound
