Absolutely NO you will not be putting 8ís on that guitar son do you want it to sound like anything.
Am teaching him how do a set up on Orville by Gibson les Paul I love japan guitars.


Child - but dad I was gonna do 8ís and top wrap them I think 10ís I donít know dad

Father - son when I was a kid we used 10 to 12ís and we walked uphill both ways to the mailbox on the farm. Come on you been using 10ís on strat and other Lesterís you were this close to having me come down on you.

6. My fingers don't like 10s with the longer scale...

 

My bends arenít as consistent.

But yeah, all a personal preference.

7. Make good choices about what to argue over and

8. Don't take my 9's away!!!!

I use Super Slinky's, Ernie Ball makes a RPS (reinforced plain string) set of Super Slinky's and the unwrapped strings bend nicely but they feel a tad bit thicker than regular 9's. They also don't break.

11. Depends On The Guitar

9's on 4 electrics and 10s on 3 others
Then 11s on an old Dan Armstrong set up for slide.
On acoustic, they're all medium gauge, but the 12 string mediums are different tan the 6 strings
