Malcolm Young’s Gibson 900M L-5 12-56 Nickel Wound Guitar Strings

Apparently, Malcolm used a pretty heavy set of Gibson guitar strings, where four of the six strings were wound. The strings measured .012. .016. .025.(wound) .034. .044 and .056

The exact set that he used is unfortunately no longer available, but if you’re lucky, you can find them on Reverb.
