  • 13's

    Holy ****************. So I've had them on my guitar for a few weeks. Man they sound great but really are tough on the tips. What's on you acoustic?

    Mediums on my dreads and jumbo's, and sometimes lights (12's) on the smaller bodied guitars. These days though, I'm playing mostly nylon-stringed guitars. (Hi tension). I don't recall what I'm using on my electric guitars, since I rarely play those now. I'm using flat-wounds on my Gibson ES-175, but I don't recall the gauge. I've got a PRS Custom, Les Paul Custon, American Strat, American Tele, and they're all lights I believe; probably a mixture of 9's and 10's. Personally, I hate 9's because they're like rubber bands.

        I've got 12's on my acoustics and 10's on the electrics. I'm sure 13's sound great, but I have enough trouble with my hand going numb from the 12's!

              Custom light (11's ) only because i use the looper and play lead. Other wise 12's.

                I put them on when I decided to drop my tuning a half-step to help my vocals. They're still pretty bad even at the lowered pitch. I went in the studio the other day and tuned it up to 440 and they "recorded" wonderfully though!

                  I've used 13's for years on my Taylor. I'm so used to them now that I don't even think about it. It didn't take all that long for me to build up a little more muscle and a little more callus. Worth it for the tone. And I actually like the firmer feel.

                    Earthwood Extra Lights (10-50), but I'm a n00b, so take what I do with a large grain of salt.
