Hey Steve, I read on TGP on a thread about I forget what, that your strat has a 14 high e and a wound g. Is that pretty much how heavy you string all your solid guitars like the Cripes and the explorer? Thanks and I will see you in Sellersville.

No, the Strat is the only one 14 18 28w 38 49 62 right now.
The white Mustang was 16 18 28w etc on the last tour, but it's back to Pyramid flat 11's.
The fretless has a 16 on top. 16 18 22p 28w 38 49
The Explorer, the L5, and the Goldtop LP are all 12 16 24w 32 42 52.
The L7, the Ozark and the Vega are 13 17 26w 36 46 56.
The Cripe's are both 11's, Pyramid flats (wound G) on the teak, D'Addario roundwound, plain G on the ebony.

I like the strings at least a little heavy I guess, I'm not really using anything lighter than 11's onstage these days.
The white Strat with the 14's is a special case, it just loves those strings and feels great, plays great, and sounds great with that gauge.
If it worked on everything, I'd use it on everything, but the string gauge depends on what the guitar likes, and they're all a little different.

Peace!
