    Yes, indeed, which is what I said to begin with, to quote myself:

    It's Ok, I'm not paying much attention to this anymore either. ;)

    The problem here is that nobody really joins a forum from a sense of indifference.

    9-46 was standard on all Gibson USA models from at least the mid '90's (but probably earlier than that. I've been buying Gibsons since 1977 and they are slow to change these kind of things) until 2019 when they switched to 10-46. Custom Shop varied depending on model. For a long time the 9-46 was billed as the "Les Paul Signature" set, not "hybrid" which is a term other makers started using when they copied the idea.

    Interesting. I did notice the listing for the 2012 SG Diablo Premium Plus I used to own said it came with 10-46 strings. I've no idea if that was a one-off (can' think why!), or, perhaps more likely, a typo on their web site.

    Also, I had no idea Les Paul was connected with the hybrid strings. Given his track record for claiming to have designed his signature guitar, I can't help wonder where he got the idea from... :smile: Whatever, they're my favourite gauge now.

    I use 9-42 strings on my sg. Anything heavier and I'm fighting the guitar. Some would find them too light, but my arthritis loves 'em. To each his/her own I guess.
