I've been using DR 11s on my Jazzmaster for years. But I'm getting a Reverend Double Agent and I'd like to have some lighter strings on the high end. I looked at EB and they have 10-52.

I've been ordering custom string gauges through Curt Mangan for my LP's (10-14-18-26-38-50) in pure nickel. You can put together anything you want from his stuff. I'm a happy camper.

I like DR MH-10. Not everyone carries them, and intonation can be inconsistent, but they sound and feel perfect to me.

I use the John Pearse 2505 Custom Set on my strats. That's 10-13-17-30-40-50. Nice and tight on the bottom strings with enough bending capabilities on the treble strings. On my Jazzmaster I have the 2610 Electric Straights set. (11-15-18-30-40-50).

I go through non-coated strings too quickly, so I use an
Elixir nano 10-13-17-26-36-46 set and replace the 13 with a 13.5 D'Add,
and the 46 with an Elixer 49 single string.

I've been using GHS Eric Johnson Custom Light Nickle Rockers (10-13-18-26-38-50) for a few years now. They are for his 24 3/4" scale length guitars.
{ He has a Custom Medium 11 - 52 set his Strats' longer scale length. }

I just looked on the GHS site; it's broken down pretty granular, and hard to find all of their 10 - 50 sets. I figured they have more than just the EJ's, and found a David Gilmour set of Boomers (10.5-13-17-30-40-50), too, that would be brighter sounding than the Nickel Rockers. They may have more offerings, but I didn't go down all of their product lines.
