Got a new McCarty 594. Played the bejeezus out of the factory strings as I loathe waste. They had a great slinky feel. Finally wore em out and replaced with Ernie Ball 10s, my go-to. The feel is markedly different. Not exactly stiffer, but I can't think of a better word for it. For the record, I did lower the action at the bridge a bit on both the treble and bass sides. Any recommendations? String brands that work well for yall re: slinkiness while still retaining resistance to pick attack (I ain't doing .09's).
