    I still have the stock strings on my Ric 330. I was thinking of putting regular 10's on there. Is anyone else doing this or are you mostly stinking with the thicker high strings and thinner low strings?

    i've got a 10-48 set of D'Addario Chromes on mine right now.

    next set will be 10-46 with a wound G.

    I used a stock set of 10-46 on my 360 for years. Sounded and played great. Strings are cheap - give it a try. You might just like it!

    Ditto. I use 10-46 on my 360/6 and have no complaints.

    Thanks for the replies and suggestions. I usually use Ernie Ball 10-46's on just about all of my guitars. I'll give them a shot.

    What do you guys think of the high gain Rick pups in the 330?

    the only complaint i have about the high gains is that i'd like a little more treble out of my 330. i'd also like to turn the 5th knob into a master volume. there's no reason for it with a mono output.

    Try a Janglebox with the HiGains. Works wonders and is cheaper than a new set of the Vintage pickups!

    the janglebox is a compressor with a high expander. which is great if you want compression. doesn't not exactly what i had in mind. course, neither are vintage pickups.
