I disagree.. Yeah maybe they play a part in your tone, but you think SRV sounded like that because he used 13's?? I dont think so man..

The heart of ANYONE'S sound is in the fingers, no doubt about it.. I change string occasionally and as I said, it doesn't make a BIG difference, I sound the same. Same with anyone, in my opinion.

You think is someone changes their strings a guage or two its gonna make a drastic change in their sound?? Hmmmmm :)
