SG owners: What strings do you use?

Well, I don't have an SG per se, it's an Epi G-400 Vintage, but I run Slinkys on it.

On an SG copy I had years and years and years ago I used EB Extra Slinkys - .008-etc. But that was back then when everybody wanted the thinnest strings possible.

Now I'd probably use the same set I use on the Les Paul - D'Addario EXL-110. Actually now that I think of it, I use the 110's on all the six strings, including the acoustic....

Add me to that list! I used them when I owned a Gibson SG Standard - sounded great.

Thanks all. Just so happens I had a set of EXL-110s. I just put them in and it sounds superb.
