its much more tr00 and cool to play thick ass strings, for one. For two. I said the size wrong, they're actually 12-56, so now its even troo'er. For 3, thin strings are for toneless bags of toneless crap tone. Duh. This is an age old fact. You must have a miniscule reproductive organ, to match your miniscule intellect, and to go along with your miniscule grasp of humor. Clearly, I was joking Thanks for missing the sarcasm boat, you all really make me depressed about being the same species as you. I do play 12-56 in D though. Great string gauge, lots of tone, and great for pinch harmonics, the thicker the string, the more fat you get out of it.
