Ernie Ball Nickle Wound 10's for the most part. Once in awhile might throw on some 9's or even 8's but the EB 10's are my mainstay simple available and great value.

I'll use Ernie Balls, and I make up my own set from a 10-46 set that goes 10, 12, 16, 26, 36, 46. But I also order boxes (12 sets) of Kurt Mangan strings in 9.5, 12, 16, 26, 36, 46, and this set works well for me on a 25.5" scale for lots of bending on the G, B and E strings.

Every once in a while I'll throw on a set of 11's just for variety and to give my fingers a workout (sorry, unclrob - I'm a wimp, just using 11's!!!). All these strings are the standard steel plated nickle or nickle plated steel; I forget which way it goes! I also like DR strings, and will use their pure nickle from time to time.

Don't remember what came on the guitar; might have been Cleartones, but I think Larrivee has switched to D'Addario EXP's maybe? I didn't like Cleartone acoustic guitar strings, but I never tried the Cleartone electrics.

I also use Dean Markley 1973 Regulars.
I really liked using Dean Markley Jimi Hendrix Pure Nickel Regulars.  However they don't make them anymore and they are getting harder to find.   crying

I just bought a couple of sets of DR tite fits. I'm putting them on my RS-4 and LT-1. Tell you what I think of them later.
