For years now, I have endorsed GHS strings. I use GHS Boomers, and the gauges are custom sets, put together for me by them.
The gauges are: 050, 038, 028, 016, 011, 009.
I arrived at these gauges because I need a tight rhythm sound, and using heavy strings on the bottom enables me to play aggressively and fast without having the strings flopping around under a very heavy pick.

Re: Re: Strings on your Super Avianti
Yeah, I remember talking to Byrd about strings, I remember him saying that he's been endorsed and has been using GHS Boomers for many years. Personally I think different brand strings actually do sound different ... I know "someone" disagrees with that assertion, but I still hear a difference.
Boomers are great on the Avianti, but I discovered that DR Pure Blues still get the big,thick lows of the Boomers but the highs are warmer and not as 'wild'. I think they both sound and feel excellent, just slightly different.
I was just wondering which strings Super Avianti Owners / players use, do you use Boomers, Andy?
