clicky! StringBusters. All I use!They deliver next day and it's all just about as cheap as you could hope for.

I use D'dadario (sp?) 9s or 10s on my Les Paul.

Mine arrive the next day if I order before 5 pm. Then they post it so it gets to my doopstep the next day, but I only live about 5-6 miles from the shop, so it may vary for you. One time they were out of stock of a capo I ordered, so it took a week, and they gave it to me for free!

I like D'Addario XL's, 10's. The gauge number comes from the thickness of the highest e string. Experiment with different gauges to see what you like.

well thats why they get there so quick
Let the pretend take over
And that season be the first
Shadows we're in become us
So we set up interspersed
Between here and away
Become your space every day

I used to use Ernie Ball Super Slinkie 9s on my Strat, but then I switched to Fender Super Bullet 9s, ad I like them much better.

For my Casino, I use Gibson Vintage Reissue 10s, but I think I might switch to 9s.
