I've mostly used 9's on electrics. Recently, I've been trying out Ernie Ball Skinny top, Heavy bottom strings (10-52) and I'm liking them so far. The bass strings are reminiscent of an acoustic guitar while the treble strings are thin enough for comfortable bending.
Over the years, I've tried several different gauges on my acoustic. At the moment, it has extra light strings - D'Addario EJ15 (10-47).
I did a switch recently went for 10's to 11's and I really like that.
Fell better to me, more solid I guess.
Took my a week to get used to them but now it's natural!
9-42s on my Tele and Strat. 10-46 on my Duo Sonic.
I use standard strings on most my guitars. 10-46 I believe. I used to use light top heavy bottoms when I played punk and metal more often. Those sounded so wicked. Nice and chunky in the low end.
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.
I'm waiting on a custom set of D'addarios.
9.5. - 44
I still have 10s on my strat and riviera, and now have 13 flats on my Ibanez.
