So when it comes time for new strings, I'd like to stick with the same gauge as what Fender put on it in the first place, but I can't find anywhere in the doc exactly what gauge the stock strings are. 9s? 10s? I dunno.

Anybody? Bueller?

They're almost certainly 9s, most electric guitars come with 9s.

probably 09 indeed... 'cuz I break one everytime I'm gonna try a new guitar at the guitarcentre in Rotterdam.... but when I'm in my hometown's guitarshop, they immediatly put 10's on 'em, cuz they know I'm coming :p

most guitars are stocked with 9's or 10's so people trying them out think they are easy to play

Ok, so the consensus is that they're 9s. Cool. Now, should I stick with the Fender Super Bullets or go to another brand? I like the trademark Strat bright jangly tone. Or am I gonna get flamed for asking this question?

there's no reason to stick with the brand or gauge that comes on the the guitar.
the fender strings certainly aren't great, and (IMO) 0.09s lack tone and certainly feel.

i recommend DR 0.11's, or if your fingers aren't strong enough for them yet (they probably are though), get 10s.

if you put on 11's then make sure you level the bridge again afterwards.
for least amount of shifting always swap one string at a time.


and bullets are pretty lifeless, imo.

i like Daddarios, or DRs.

Yeah I've noticed that the bullets are already starting to sound kinda dull, and they're only 2 weeks old.

I don't think I'm ready to all the way to 11s yet, but I might do 10s next. Hmm. I also don't want to have to mess with my setup if I can avoid it, which is part of the reason I'm thinking of staying with 9s.
