    The 70 was what I used to use on 26.5, but now I use 10-64.

    I order my strings from juststrings.com because nowhere local has good single strings, and I hate all the pre-packaged sets :lol:

    :agreed:

    I use this set for standard tuning, but in my band I tune to G so I have a custom set from juststrings.com for that.

    I use exactly the same... EXL110-7 sets... For most things I find the .059 to be thick enough, but sometimes I think a little thicker would be nice as well...
