    I would have disagreed at one time that I needed a hollowbody in my collection, but I chnaged my mind a number of years ago and bough one--an Ibanez AF95.

    And i am sure that one looks much better without the stickers.

    Once you really appreciate hollowbodies it is hard to play solids. At least for me. The sound a hollowbody gives you is so big if you set everything right

    I have no problem--I appreciate both and will choose which one depending on what I feel like, what I'm playing & what context.
    If I am just noodling around at home and it doesn't really matter I often try to play both hollow & solid.
    They have qualities & characteristics that overlap and ones that don't.
    (Although when I injured my right shoulder it was easier to play solidbodies due tot he smaller body size.)

    Sensible- still I find solidbodies very unsatisfying in recent years. Maybe I need to get 13's on them and then try again

    I have different gauges on different guitars--10-52 on my archtop, (It came with that gauge & I liked it--but I switch the 3rd string to a wound string)
    I do use 11-50 on an electric I use for slide.
    Otherwise I use 9-42 or 10-46--at least on electric.

    I noticed that as I raised string gauges lighter gauges really bothered me. I don't think I could play 10's at all at this point. Maybe it is the gauge- I left all my solid bodies with 11's as I moved to 13's on the archtops.

    Hey--we all have different fingers & different ears--9's & 10's is what work best for what I do--and hey if we all used the same strings & same gear we might start sounding like each other & not like ourselves...
    So in terms of the OP--string gauge--experiment--find what works & use it.
    But don't be afraid to experiment in the future again.

    I know--but it's still on topic that way.
    And we did have the thread brought back to life--same advice--for all of us.

    I do try different gauges from time to time.
