    "There was a question awhile back about what type and gauge 
     strings Peter Buck uses on his Rickenbacker 360 JG. My answer 
     was that all I remembered was that it's a rather heavy set. 
     But now here's the definitive answer:

        ..013 Plain-    Swedish Steel
        ..017 Plain-    Swedish Steel
        ..026 Wound-    Nickel Steel
        ..036 Wound-    Nickel Steel
        ..046 Wound-    Nickel Steel
        ..056 Wound-    Nickel Steel

     These are Dean Markley individual strings.

     His guitar (the one with the trucker's playmate sticker on it) 
     is currently here at the factory so that we can set up a new 
     instrument exactly like his old one, using the string set listed
