David Gilmour’s GHS Signature Guitar Strings

These are the strings that David used on his electric guitar ever since the late 70s. In more recent years, GHS developed a custom signature set for David, which is also sold publically.. The set is available in the versions, the 10-48 set, which David uses on his Stratocasters, and the 10.5-50 set which he apparently uses on his Les Pauls.

He uses a customized set of GHS Boomers. The gauges are .010, .012, .016, .028, .038 and .048. For his acoustic guitars he uses Ernie Ball Earthwood light gauge strings.
