    Any opinions? What strings are good choices to use on a solid body LP style Twelve String guitar?

    I want to re-string my electric LP style solid body twelve string guitar. I am wondering what strings players with 12'ers are putting on their guitars.

    Since this is a solid body LP type one, are there any specific type strings that would work the best with this type of 12 string guitar?

    I had read that some use flat wounds to reduce some of the high end jingle jangle. I'm not sure if this is something that a lot of dudes do or not, but I would consider it.

    So, what brands of strings, and weights, etc., are the electric 12 string players we have here using?

    Feedback is appreciated.

    Note, this will be my first re-string of the 12'er.

    I use a set of D'Adarios .010 on my EDS1275. Not much else to pick from. thought of the flats but the guitar has that Page ,McLaughlin and Howe sound so not in to the flats. Might like to try some pure nickel but it pretty much only the D's unless I order.
