I like .11's, though I'm trying out .12's right now, and I'm not really feeling a huge difference. Thicker strings last longer, and IMO sound a little meatier. I can still bend 2 whole steps with .12's, so it's not super bad or anything.


Gear: 5150, RG2EX2, a FrankenSquire, and a MG10 (Underrated)

Well I use 10's but thinking of going to 9's on my Les Paul and staying with 10's on my fender don't know though I like the more fatter tone from 10's but like bending the 9's better as I am an old man now it takes more on my hands to bend the 10's so scared to go to 11's lol

I use D'Addario 9's.
If I had an SG, I think I'd put 10's on it just to try them out.
