my LP custom feels and sounds great with 9's, but thats my pref because i do not like to play on heavy strings
Another thing I've noticed in the last few months. Used to be I'd play for an hour or two and my fingers...even though they're callused...would get a little sore. Now it seems like that almost never happens. In fact, my finger tips actually feel a little numb. I guess they're so heavily callused now that it just doesn't bother me anymore

I know what you mean. I don't like to fight the strings. Which is why I played 9's for years. But over the past few years my playing time has increased dramatically.

Hey Jeff Good to hear from you man! If playing time has increased, sounds like Fishtrunk is doing well. Very glad to hear it.
As to increasing gauges, even though I have played 9's for years now, I am hopeful that as playing time increases I can move to 10's and 11's. Right now my mittens are just not up to it , but someday.......
