I took delivery of one of these a few weeks ago and tuned it to C6 and have been really impressed with both the guitar and the strings. There was no info with it but I would like to find out what gauge the strings are that they ship them with. A brand name would be great as well, anybody here know? They seem to be a little heavier than the GHS C6 sets I've been using on my old lap steel.

Per the Gretsch website, they ship with Fender 250H Nickel Plated Strings, .012¨ - .052¨:
