Title says it all. Stock strings are .09-.42, right? Should I change off the strings the moment I get the guitar? If so, what strings would you recommend?

Don't use Ernie Ball, they rust faster than any other brand I've ever played.

And there's no need to change the strings immediately unless you fell that they're already rusting and/or getting "played out".
Sorry man but I absolutly LOVE Ernie Ball strings. String choice is a preference. Go buy three or four different kinds and switch them out and find out what YOU like not us.
it depends

when i got my new ltd a bunch of new ghs strings were atached to it. they were kind of cool
Am I weird or does it seem that stock strings can last for a reaaaaaaaaaaal long time before they go bad as opposed to new strings you buy?
I replaced mine a week after bringing my new guitar home. The strings had a grungy feel to them. Probably too many test plays. I also cleaned the fretboard too. Niiiiice and smooth now!
if they are rust free and in a gauge you prefer then keep them on until they need changing, but I always put a fresh set of Power Slinkies on new guitars I get and set them up for that because usually the stock strings are too thin.
