That looks right to me. I just didn't like the wound G string myself. Many prefer it for the piezo tone. I could not detect enough of a difference for my tastes and bending the wound string was a much greater challenge than I prefer. Using DR Pure Blues right now, but I am not sure that they are superior in any way..

Mine came from the factory with 11's and a wound G string, which I quickly replaced. Being able to easily bend the G string a full step was more important to me than having a better acoustic sound that the wound G produces.

I use these. It's a set of D'Addario 10's w/a wound G string. Best of both worlds for me...

No wound third for me. I use the PRS DGT strings (.011 - .049, unwound third.)
That's what I am currently using as well. can't bring myself to move down to 10's because I fear what may happy to the piezo acoustic tone. All of my non piezo guitars have 10's on them (except for one with 09's), so no issues with 10's on the electric side of things
Jamie - I assume you like the acoustic tone that you are getting with 10's??

Yes I do. I don't hear any loss of tone. And I prefer playing 10's. I have delicate hands... ;)
