A lot of people spend a fair amount of time choosing amps, guitars and pedals in search of a thick/chunky guitar tone. One aspect that often gets overlooked is the strings. If you take the time to get used to playing with very heavy strings, you’ll notice right way that your tone is more full and certainly more chunky. An additional bonus is that you’ll most likely find that you break fewer strings. Lastly, since strings that heavy are more difficult to do insane bends on, you’ll be less likely to try and place guitar like this.
