I'm gonna be keeping my SG in Drop C and D standard using .11-.50 strings. For my Ibanez, I'm bringing that bitch down to C Standard and Drop Bb and C# Standard and Drop B. I will be using .12-.56 I'm convinced those are the gauges I want. Problem is, I'm wondering whether or not the big ass .56 will fit in the tuning peg. If it does, great. No problem there. But if it doesn,t what do I do? I have a dremel, should I lightly dremel or drill it out? Or should I invest in new tuners? If I needed new tuners, what would I need for an Ibanez RG2EX1?
it should fit...
Why wouldnt it fit?
.56 doesn't fot on some guitars. Just in case
Lots of strings have the end of the last string thinned out so as to make it easier to restring, but it should fit.
I use Dunlop Zakk Wylde 10 - 46s and have for 2 years. I swear by them. I tune to standard, D standard and Drop C and have NEVER broken a single one.
^I'm not worried about breakage. I dont like the feell of thin strings.
yes it will fit, i have done it
theyll fit, no worries. like Zoso said, pretty much all strings have the end thinned out so that theyll fit for sure
I don't think you should need to use a dremel on your tuners. It will more than likely fit. If not, then I would invest in new tuners. They're not really that expensive anyways.
