String Gauges

While string gauge is a poor indicator of tension, feel or response (due to the varying composition of strings, and resulting variability in density and other characteristics), it is sometimes helpful to be able to compare string diameters.  To facilitate such comparisons, I am providing for comparison the approximate gauges of a variety of the strings we carry.
