Standard factory Universe string gauge?

Just wondered what the gauges are on a 2003 UV777PBK?

Was in Sound Control buying my Boss GT6, went to buy a set of strings...then realised I had no idea!!!

Er, thanks!

Don't happen to know the individual gauges of each string do you?

Our local shop don't sell 7 string sets so I have to buy a 6 string set and an individual string for the low B. Is the six string 9-42 or 9-46, and what gauge is the B (52?)

Yep factory gauge i based on .009's (9-42). I believe the Low-B is a .052" (might be .053 but I'm not sure). I've been using 9-42 s standard on my UV with a .056 on the Low-B as I think the 52 was a bit to "wobbly" at a B tuning.
