17 or 10?

Searched quickly but didn't find anything about this. If you had to do it in a jam, and I mean up sh*t creek, not a jam session, but that would apply too. Well, maybe that applies more.

So if you had to use either a .10 or .17 string on your telecaster in a pinch as a B string guage .13 replacement, which would you use? You have an extra of each, but nothing in .13 guage. So whattda do? Which do you go with?

I'd go with the .17. The .10 would sound like a fart tuned to B.

.10, it's the same as the B string on 8 gauge sets. It'll just be kinda loose for a while until you can get a proper replacement.

EDIT: Hang on a sec, what are you tuning it to? I thought standard. Then again if you're using .13 gauge anyway it's probably actually best to use the 17.

I'd go .10 because apparently it would sound like fart.

Edit: I'm a sellout

.17, the .10 wouldn't sound very good with that little tension. My personal thoughts anyways.

I'd cut off a couple more strings and form a Seasick Steve tribute band.

Replace a string? Makes more sense to buy a new guitar.

Why bother replacing the string? What you really need is a new amp.

what you really need is a fog machine, really adds to that 'new amp' tone.

Buy a new guitar? Makes more sense to just stop playing guitar.

What genre of music are you playing where you need the B string?
