A standard 0.09" should take a G tuning but if they are breaking try a 
0.08" or a 0.085 if you can find one. You get a tradeoff between tension 
and strength but it should work ok. Bear in mind that Fripp uses a Gibson 
scale length guitar (24 3/4") so if you use Fender scale (25 1/2") the 
string tension will be greater you will be more likely to break strings.
