Well, it’s been awhile since I changed the strings on my Eastman T386, I don’t play this guitar everyday but it is my main gigging guitar, so it’s probably way past time. I mostly play ‘jazz’, so mellow/warm/dull/lifeless strings are just what I’m looking for… ahaha.
I’m going to try Dunlop Electric Pure Nickel (11 MED HVY) for the first time. I’ve been using pure nickel strings since I tried them a few years ago. The favorite strings I found (Martin Electric SP Nickel Wound Medium – .011 .014 .018 .028 .038 .049) are now discontinued, I haven’t settled on a new regular brand yet.
Current favorite gauge/string: .011’s Pure Nickel
