Both D'Addario and Ernie Ball make fine strings, I like them both but prefer D'Addario for my Les Pauls. Some folks think 9s are too light for Gibsons but I like 'em just fine. Try different strings, find out what YOU like..

    Comments about D'Addario EXL120 Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings (10-Pack):

    I have been using these strings for 45 years. I find them to be consistent in tone, tension, strength, balance and quality. I tend to play rock and I am a little heavy on the strings. A lot of bending and heavy picking. It is rare that I break a string. I don't change them as often as most people do but they still sound good. I find them to be a good quality string that is consistent enough that I don't need to play with the intonation when I restring. They have a bright sound that lasts, but it is also classic in nature. It is not a twang sound. It is more Nickel Bright then Steel Bright. They are nickel plated steel and not all nickel. That gives them a tone some where in the middle. It makes blues sound bluesy and not like country. But country still sounds good. Tone is a subjective thing so what sounds natural to me, might sound awful to others. I also like the tension on these strings. It just feels right. I was thinking of trying the 8.5 to see how they felt. Over the last 45 years I have tried many strings and brands. For Tone and Feel these are my go to strings hands down.
