and what gauge would be good?

Well uh, for those guys pretty much any standard set of steel strings would give you the sond you want, along with a standard to light gauge....
My God, it's full of stars!

Get lots of brands and try them out over the next year(assuming you change your strings every month like me). It took me 9 months to figure out the guage and brand that i liked on my first guitar. I've had my new guitar for... almost 3 months now and I still don't know what I like best on them. Just try them for yourself.
