    I like to use 130, 105, 85, 60, 40. Guitar Center is pretty cool about putting together sets for me at reasonable prices. Just curious...anyone else like to mix and match guages? Any good or cheap companies online I can check out? I really don't care about the brand. I usually use whatever is cheap.

    I believe DR can make you a custom set of strings. You just have to order them from a DR distributor, but DR's aren't cheap i'd say they are good deal though. I just wish more people sold the nickel roundwounds.

    I tend to use Med gauge steels, or piccolo gauges. LaBella makes every set I need, but for custom sets, I used to use a guy, but can't remember hsi name anymore.
