John Frusciante’s D’Addario EJ16 Acoustic Guitar Strings

There doesn’t seem to be any information about which acoustic guitar strings John uses, neither from him nor from someone who could be considered a credible source (basically, his guitar tech).

The only info about the topic comes from D’Addario’s website, on which it is listed that John uses their EJ16 light set. The gauges are .012, .016 unwound, and .024, .032, .042, .053 wound.
