John Frusciante’s D’Addario Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings

There is very little information out there regarding John’s choice of acoustic guitar strings. D’Addario’s used to have some on the old version of their website, on which it was listed that John used their EJ16 light set. The gauges are of this set .012, .016 unwound, and .024, .032, .042, .053 wound.

But, John’s guitar tech seems to remember otherwise. In the comments section of his own video on the topic of how he strung John’s guitars, he recalls using 10s. This would be the D’Addario EJ10 set.
