    I switched to 11s.







    It's a different sound.

    i dunno if it's a different sound, but it's definitely a different feel. i play Dunlop 11-50 on my Ric 330 and Telecaster. also thinking about bumping up to them on my cheapo Ibanez.

    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov, Newsweek (21 January 1980)

      I love 'em. I use stainless SITs, 11-50, with a wound G.

        It's a different sound and feel. You lose the high end skank, and higher frequencies during the solos, but you get a meaty-er tone. I played a semi-hollow over the weekend with 11s and the tone was ridiculously thick. It also made my solos more meaningful because there were less speedy flash licks. Then again it was a blues gig.



        I just strung my fake Paul with 11s. It's a different animal now.

          I like 10's the best. They sound fat enough and aren't too heavy to play on. I already really need to work pretty hard on 10's when I'm playing bends and fast stuff.



          I got an Ibanez shred guitar with 9's. They sound thin, but they're so easy to play.

            11's are what I favor on my Tele. They seem like the best playability/sound compromise if you want to do some bending now and then but not go insane.



            Jazz/Jag type guitars get 12's usually.

                I put 12s on my Tele and I'm never going back. I'm going to try them out on the Casino eventually, too.

                  Also, when I whack an E chord it doesn't temporarily go out of tune.

                      i had 12's on my strat for a while, i definitely noticed an improved overall tone, especially when strumming chords and letting notes ring out. i really enjoyed it but my floating trem didn't. i backed down to 11's and it's more or less the same. i also noticed increased strength in my left hand, so much so that i was overbending a lot on guitars with thinner strings.



                      my old MIJ jazzmaster also had 12's and it sounded thick and mean. thick strings are great. but thinner gauges have advantages as well, of course.



                      i hear you JJ about whacking chords too, completely different interaction, usually with great results.

                      Dolls may be smaller than 12 inches, but as long as they still have clothing that can be completely removed.
