They were probably 12s because there was a LOT of metal strung up on that guitar, the low E was pretty big. I used 12s or 13s for a long time, and that E was way too big to be a "normal" string gauge. The other guitars on display had roundwounds of a much smaller gauge.
Per Dozin:Weir gets a special set of Pyramid strings made for him called the BW Specials. They consist of 12-52 with an unwound G string.
Please correct me if I'm wrong. I know, telling string gauge w/o playing the guitar is dubious, but what I saw lines up with Dozin's info.
Sorry, I just noticed this. I got the info from Hoeg. He works on Bobby's guitars and AJ gives him the pyramid strings. Pyramid does sell the 12-52 medium/heavy the G string is a 22 in this set. The whole set is 012 .016 .022w .033w .042w .052w I'm sure any plain steel 18 would work fine for the G
