    Ope. Lol. I feel like 24 is too young to have those, but my wife would disagree with me given my track record :rofl:

    I played with 7s on my LP Custom for about a month and a half and although they are quite manageable I went back to 9-42s for my comfort. The difference between the two on a shorter scale is dramatic. I'll keep the 7s on my Strat though.

    I've been using (GHS) 10-46 for a long time. Tried 9-42 on my SG with a stop/bridge tailpiece and I liked it. So I also swapped my LP Special (same bridge/stop) to use them. I like the feel better - I think the one-piece stop/tail is inherently stiffer since there's less string to be pulled when you bend. It just feels too tight.

    I think the 10's rang with a little more chime. At lest when playing unplugged. But, it could be my imagination.

    My LP still has 10-46's on it. Might swap it, but it feels as easy as the others with 9's. It has the TOM setup though, so that might be the difference.

    9-42, but only because of my arthritis.
