Who has'em?? Thinking of upping my string gauge on my Suhr which was set up for 10s originally. No reason other than the quest for larger tone!

I have five Suhrs. D'Addario 11's on all of them. Feels great, sounds great.

I know a guy that has 12's on his Suhr. He ordered that way and it sounds fabulously thick and the intonation is spot on.

Suhrs deserve the best....SOBs.

No D'Adarrios on any of my 2 Pensa-Suhrs, 3 vintage Strats (1957, 58 and 64), 1956 Tele, 5 LPs (57 GT,58 BB, 61 SG Ebony, 57 Jr and TV), 1959 ES 335,345 and 355s...all the way to the Collings CL. All play better and sound 100% better/more musical w/ SOBs. Not a subtle upgrade: a shrillness that you didn't know existed is replaced with sweetness, longer sustain and balanced output string to string.

Dean's Nickel 11s are on most, except Fenders with vintage frets (10s).

Know and love Dean, a treasure to the tone seekers like John Suhr, who I also have the pleasure to know and admire...but not related by blood or economics.
