For a decade+ it was just Dadarrio XL 10s. Lately I’ve switched everything to Gilmour GHS, which is a custom set of Boomers. I love the heavier ones on the 335....im less completely in love with the lighter set on the strat (and the heavier was too much)—but, on the tele, its magic. Alleviated the kind of “overly tense” feel without causing intonation issues, like as example Dadarrio balanced tension (thus i think thats also the fancier new ones) did. Last a lot longer than the Daddarios did, too.
20+ years and still on Fender Super Bullets 10's. No other strings work for me. Have them on all 3 of my Teles, and would on my Gretsch except for the bullet ends...
I think Yanuzello (sp?) takes bigsby tailoieces and mods them by drilling out the pins so you can string through the wrap around instead of using the pins to hold the ball ends. I always wanted to do that but don’t have a drill press or time to do it. Seems like a really slick mod!

yeah the regular dean markleys still come in the yellow pack sometimes with a sticker I used to play SIT strings back in the early 80's and was surprised and pleased to see them still around it seems like the quality is just as good as it was in the past
I bounce around depending on the Tele. Some have Stringjoy Broadways(pure nickels round core) others Daddario XL. Sometimes GHS Boomers. Even flats occasionally. I have the half round Daddarios on one pine Tele and they are awesome.
