I use 9s on both my UVs. They are strung with D'Addarios. Thanks, Rich. Those are now my favorite strings and have been for over a year.

I used to use EB super slinkys, then I went with 10s on one of my 7620s. That is the only guitar setup with 10s (Ernie Ball). The rest, 9s. I did buy a set of D'Addario 10s for the RG for the future. D'Addarios are great.

i will probably string mine with nine's don't know what the stock strings were on there, but they felt like ten's for some reason...

anyway, if GHS makes a 7 string set, than that. but if not, whatever i can get my hands on.

I've always liked heavier gauge strings.

I really like a 60 on the bottom for the low b. It is extremely tight, and sounds great.
