Putting new strings on my Viper 3. This guitar is new to me, so, I am looking for opinions for make/model string along with the gauge.

I ended up with getting Di Adarro's XL120. Not too slinky, not too stiff. Just right for my style.

It all depends on what kind of music do you play and what do you normally use on your other guitars.

Viper III is a versatile guitar of the Tele/Strat sound variety and can fit into any style.

The bridge has a long enough area to enable you to use anything from .008 to .012 on the first string and .048 to .052 on sixth.

You are the one who will be playing, so adjust the guitar to suit you.

Best,

Dusan
