I use a strat tuned to dropped B, with 13-65 gauge strings. I take a set of 10-46s, throw away the 10, and use a bass string for the low B. I think I need to use lighter treble strings, because the 13-26 are a bitch to bend. They don't have any decay in pitch when notes are held, though!

The point is that you'd be using a D string in the G string position so what is normally an unwound G would end up being a wound string.

Well Slipknot tune down to Drop B with an 11 - 56 or 58 set, so maybe a 12 - 60 set?

eeehhhh, no?

If you take the 6 lowest strings from a 7string set you will have a normal G string....!
