    I use standard gauge 10 strings on guitar. What is the equivalent gauge for bass?

    There isn't really an equivalent, the feel will be very different no matter what and you don't really fret the two the same way

    the "standard" most common gauge on bass would be 45-105
    however your preferences on bass may differ frmo your preferences on guitar. i like light gauge and low tension on bass but cant stand floppiness on guitars. try out the 45-105 then go up or down depending on your preferences
