    What string brand, version and gauge do you use on your American Pro?

    I’ve used EB 10-46 or 9-42 on all my strats. I’ve used both on the professional. Sold it because of the pickups, and the feel of the tall skinny frets. But pure nickel in either of those gauges sounded better to me with the v mods.

    Those of you who have multiple American Pros and/or American Standards, I’m just curious... Why? One maple one rosewood? Different tunings for on stage?

    I use the same strings on all my guitars. D'Addario 10-46, or GHS 10-46. Depends on which are cheaper when I buy them.
