GHS Boomers or Nickel Rockers
Probably thicker gauge, like 11's-13's.
Or get whatever you're comfortable with.
But, GHS NR's and boomers are classics.

For bends, Ernie Ball 9's or 10's.

For a thicker, richer tone, get something like 11's.

I had 12's on my strat, but switched back to 9's/10's because I missed the long bends.
