I have a Epi LP w/ a Floyd Rose system on it. I switched it to Drop C a long time ago and have noticed a problem with my bottom string. While the top 5 strings have a normal narrow vibration pattern when played open, the bottom string exhibits a wildly wide vibration pattern, almost hitting the G string. Is there an easy fix for this or do I need to pay to have my guitar set up for Drop C at a music shop?

Strings maybe too light a gauge? what guage are they?
11-52 are good for drop c (i think)
Also when changing gauge youll need to adjust the spring tension

11's are perfect for drop C, thats all I have ever used

Did you have the FR put on your LP, if so it might not be set properly...if you got the guitar with the FR on it, how was it when you first had it? was it set up for Drop C or E standard?

Do you really talk like that? I can't tell if it's serious.


TS, did you set up the Floyd properly for that tuning? Check the Floyd tutorial stickied here: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=614226

It definitely sounds like you got a set of 9's on there trying to pull that off. My band plays in drop C, and I use 12's. The tension of the strings makes the guitar feel like it's in standard when I play it. Everyone's saying 11's are perfect, but imo, they're all retarded. I used 11's for drop D and when we detuned I felt like I was playing spaghetti.
