    for stringing thru the body, D'addario's tapered too soon on the E string and got thin right at the first fret before the nut.

    Dean Markley Blue steels and super rounds seem to work pretty good. i like Med.light 45-105 and custom light 46-102
    gauges, we tune down 1/2 step...

    just wondering what other ripper players like using.
  2. I use DR Hi-Beams on mine 45-105, through the body. Very bright sound.
