    Can someone tell me if the Paul's SE comes with 9's or 10's?
    I'm not sure and want to restring it!
    Thanks!

    As far as I know all the SEs come with 9's. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Some of the online retailers usually have all the specs including string gauges so you can look up your model to be sure. Hope this helps a little.

    Before the latest website upgrade the Paul's guitar, Bernie Marsden-s and hollowbody's were listed as 10-46's withe the rest of the SE range being 9-42's

    My 2019 came with 10s

    I usually check with calipers to be sure, unless I have already changed strings and have the empty pack in the case to remind me.

    It's a great guitar! Love the way it sounds as much as the way it looks!
