Elixers are what I use, if you dont like those I'd recommend Daddarios. Make sure you have the right gauge too.

Daddarios are good. Keep in mind, all strings need to be broken in. Especially elixirs since they since they have oxidation coatings on them.

Yeah, but 'cause Elixir are coated then they won't ever sound as good as an uncoated string.

D'addario EXL110 would be perfect.

I use ernie ball .10's on my les paul and I'll never use anyhting else. I've tried some other brands but found ernie's to be the smoothest and most comfortable. But that's all IMHO.
