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.
