Ive tried Dadarrio Extra Super Lite (.39 -.08), liked them but I'll stick with Super Lites.

I use these for my acoustic guitar, and I must admit they are the best I`ve ever had.

My acoustic pretty much needs the lightest gauge to even function... haha, for some reason there's so much tension on the strings at all times, that I can't even bar all the strings cleanly, one always buzzes, and playing it for even short times tires my fingers out so much.

I use Dean Markley strings, the Nuno Bettencourt signature ones. They're hybrids. I have no idea who he is, but I love 'em. They were on clearance at a music store for 4 bucks. I bought one set and came back later and bought the last seven. :D I have no idea what I'm gonna do when I need more of those...

Damnit Endy, I was going to make that joke!

Anyway, I use Ernie Ball Super Slinky.

okay. so it turns out that RGs come out of the factory with d'ardioss .009-.42
and i bought the b52s in .010-.46
so i got a question. does it make a big dea? i already know i have to readjust the bridge and the action, what what im wondering is if they are really thick and will they make my playing difficult?

At the moment, I use Ernie Ball Hybrids. I am pretty satisfied with them.

can somebody answer my question. i broke my b string and i completely fucked my floating trem. it's untuned, de-leveled and i wont be able to fix it in a month. i got a month of no recording and no practicing so i just want to know what effect will these thicker strings will have on my playing

Happened to me when I got my RG. No strings broke but the bridge was angled alot. It should have come with and extra spring, open the back cover, de tune the strings, and add the extra spring (there should be 4). then re tune and adjust the spring claw until the bridge is level. That's what I did.
