I occasionally get the urge to show my badassery to other guitarists. When that happens I like to equip a strat with 11 or 12 gauge fender 150 strings, preferably with bullet ends. These already have an interesting tension on a strat that differs fro a set of regular slinkies, so upping gauge makes for some thick twang like y'all ain't never hoid.
