Nice wife. Take care of her.

What string guage you stick with depends a lot on how much bending you do. I do a lot, so I use 9's on my guitars, 335's included.

So do I but I prefer 11's.

In the end it's what you feel comfortable with that works (I tried everything from 8's to 13's and 11's feel perfect to me)
My current Setup:
Genevieve - My Epi Les Paul Standard in Natural fitted with BB Pros
Dot Studio in faded cherry with GFS Mean 90 in neck and Gibson 57 Classic in bridge.
Home built 52 style tele with matched custom wound Bare Knuckle 'Yardbirds'
Epi BC30 fitted with NOS '61 RCA Blackplates and a '59 Mullard GZ34
Strat style bitsa affectionately known as the plank
Korean Tanglewood TW400N acoustic
EJ200CE Super Jumbo
AXL Player Bass

Very little talent & big dreams!

Short scale 10's and long scale 9's for me. I'm getting old and my fingers like that combo best now.
