i like fender strings for my tele. i bought 4 sets time before last and they were super duper, but didn't last very long. i got fender super bullets last time, 9-42 from a bargain site, they do the job but lack the sound i want. i wont use ernie ball as they are too bendy. i tend to be a bit heavy handed so they're in constant motion so sound out of tune!
i use martins on my acoustic 10 gauge which i like (also from the bargain site)
i got some australian strings for electric guitar which lost their tone very quickly, wont use them again, but the bass guitar strings are still on.
i used to like ghs on my strat, but they don't work so well on my tele.
it's much of a muchness really, horses for courses. you have to experiment (which could work out expensive) until you get the sound, feel and price you want.
