I think it sounds like a lame poll :sleep1: and maybe it is, but I was just interested to see what gauges of string you use or even if you care at all :rolleyes:.

I personally use 12's, not too light and good for bending, but still a strong bass sound. :clap:

I am currently using Gibson Brite Wires - gauges 10-13-17-26-36-46 - on my Les Paul.

I usually stay with 10-46's myself as well - easy to bend and still a good sound.

I use .11's on my Les Paul and .10's on my Strat. I don't know that I'd call .11 gauge electric strings light though.

010 Heavy Bottom on my electric

012 on my acoustic. I want 013 for it, but they are simply not to be found anywhere 'round here... :(

Try http://MusiciansFriend.com and I'm sure you'll find any strings you want.

I voted "different, depends on my mood" but that is not really true. I have changed my strings twice in the past few months but both sets (although different makes) were just labelled "Classical Guitar String Set - NYLON - Ball end". As a comlete beginner could someone please advise me what I should ask for at my local music shop?
