I prefer Elixirs usually in .012 gauge.

Tinker around with 80/20 and 90/10 phosphor-bronze gererally the higher the ratio the brighter they will sound (pure steel will be intolerable) and play with gauges. All guitars (and their players) like different things with the strings. It usually takes me a few weeks of experimenting to figure what I like on each guitar, and it varies wildly between my three.
