    I've thought about the BB King signature strings several times but never find them in stock...I like the fact that they are pure nickel and I like the slightly heavier low E string...I use 10-52's the BB Kings are a 10-54.

    Anybody use these???

    I used to like the Gibson vintage reissue strings a lot...then I started having trouble finding them because for a while I don't think Sam Ash carried them. Then I switched to Snake Oil strings and they are the best I ever tried. But I liked the Gibsons a lot when I could find them.

    I actually really like the Les Paul 10's and Ernie Ball Regular (10) slinkys. They feel really different, so depending on my mood I get one or the other (or both).

    Yep, VR10s are my string of choice. I really haven't used anything else for several years.
