    Hi,

    New to forum, got my first Gibson.
    What strings are on my 60th anniversary CS 59 Les Paul?

    Steel.

    Nylon would sound horrible.

    I believe it left the factory with the Gibson Vintage Reissue Electric Guitar String gauge 10 to 46.

    Look at the string balls, if they are multi-colored, D'Addario.

    Customer service at Gibson told me that my 2017 ES-335 came with D'Addario strings. The balls were not multi-colored. I don't think they always do that on OEM strings.

    That’s what my ‘15 TH had when I bought it new.
    Some people call me old fashion - but fire scares me
