I am sure this has been done before, but what type of Strings do you prefer for acoustics and for electric?
Personally i Use Ernie Ball Super Slinky for My 'lectric. I have only changed the strings on my acoustic once so I have no preference there.
American by birth, Texan by GRACE OF GOD
There are two kinds of people in this world... THose who live in Texas and those who wish they lived in Texas.
Super Slinkies for me too.
As for acoustic my new guitar came with D'addario's fitted. Can't think of a reason to change them for anything else when the time comes.
I've had a lot of sobering thoughts in my time.
It was them that turned me to drink.
Here we go.....

I have Dean Markley Phos-bronze 12's on my Indiana dreadnought, (tuned down half a step to Eb-thanks, Ricochet and Misanthrope for that one!); on the Hohner folkie, there are D'addario Phos-bronze 10's; and on the half-size Little Lyon there are Ernie Ball Super Slinky 10's. So far, so good with all of them.

Electric : Don't have one at present, used to use Fender Bullets on my Strat.
Acoustic : D'Addario EXP coated 12's...last somewhat longer than the coated Elixir Nanoweb 12's I tried before.
They both last way longer than cheaper strings seem to...for me, anyway.

Our songs also have the standard pop format: Verse, chorus, verse, chorus, solo, bad solo. All in all, I think we sound like The Knack and the Bay City Rollers being molested by Black Flag and Black Sabbath.
