According to the page I'll link below, Clarence White strung his Tele with a .009 to .042 set, but swapped his 'G' string with a .013. I think I'm gonna try that next string change. http://www.burritobrother.com/gear.htm Going from a dread with (probably) medium gauged strings to a Tele with .009s and a really light 'G' string must take an incredibly delicate touch. Clarence White certainly had one! I like .009s on my Tele and Strat, but sure can mash them out of tune if I'm careful. Even though .010s on a Gibson have the same feel, that thicker wire really helps with tuning and intonation.
