I've used Gibson Vintage Reissues for many years now. I used to be 009 man, but the shop who sold me the Firebird told me to stick with the 010s. I'm now pretty much used to them. [smile]

Thomastik Infield Sliders in .009's worth every penny. I used to use Thomastik Infield BeBop light top/heavy bottom, but switched to sliders for more squeel on demand without sounding too thin otherwise.

Ernie Ball 11-48, they are a little harder to play on the upper frets, but no other problems.

My strat has 11-48 and I love it because I'm NOT delicate with my picking and I'm not breaking strings too often.

 

I'm thinking of 12-50 or 11-50 since it would tighten up the bass strings for my right hand WindMill style.

 

its a 2012 FV

EB .011-.054's on mine. I play .011's on just about all my electrics but the Beefy Slinky's really tighten things up on the Firebird.

Hmmmm may have to check that out then thanks for your info dude!!
