lol yea i have a rhytym guitarist and i own a les paul and i was wondering if there are certian kind of strings that will give me that authentic rhcp funky jazzy sound, ive been using ddarrio XL strings for about a year now, and yea there bendeble, and crap and the sound is awesome, but i want some strings that will give me a real rhcp sound, without the use of effects, also strings that wont break so easily, i tend to strum on the G, B, and A a lot when im playing blues chords

he uses a strat, theres no pair of strings that will make your les paul sound like one.

yeah...If you're looking for an RHCP sound, the strings are probably the last thing you would consider...

A lot of pros do that: if they play a wrong note, they'll hit it again to make it look as if it's intentional. It's called "jazz", aparently.

yea strings dont really make or break your tone.
try single coil pickups

vintage style strats to be specific, but if you wanna be really traditional he uses .10's and an 11 for the high E

yea, good strings only add clarity, they won't change the sound, only enhance it.
they are the icing on the cake,
