Elvis Guitar String gauge

Wed Jan 07, 2015 9:51 pm

When Elvis played the guitar, what gauge of strings he used?

On the 1968 special, for example, his J200 sounds like it has a medium gauge. On the EIC, on the other hand, the guitar sounds like it is using the light gauge.

Can anyone confirm or give insights on this topic?

Thanks a lot!
