On acoustic I play D'add 12-53 (EJ16)
On electric I play D'add 11-49 with a wound 3rd

I had played primarilly acoustic for so many years (usually playing 12-56 during most of those years) that when I started really playing electric I needed some strings with substance, thus the wound 3rd. I don't really do a lot of crazy bends and such anyways.

The blues are inside me, and my job is to let them out.

I still have 10s on my strat and riviera, and now have 13 flats on my Ibanez.
