so, the highest i will tune my guitar will be C-standard, with me playing in Drop-B 80% of the time, and occasionally trying standard/drop A. now, im pretty sure i have a reg. set of 11s on now with a 49 bottom i believe, and drop B is decent, but i want something that doesnt sound as sloppy/loose. but what bottom string gauge would be sufficient? 52? 56? maybe a 60?

if i can figure out what bottom would be decent, everything else will be set.

I use the Not Even Slinky set of Ernie Balls, I believe they are 13's, sufficient for Drop B.

This. But MAKE SURE you never tune higher than C. If you go to standard it'll **** up your neck.

well i was using .010's for a standard for the longest time and trust me it was fine.

i used to use some .013's (and use them again now) and i was able to go from a standard to e standard fine and no it didnt **** up my guitar.

in the end if you want c standard id use .012's because even with .013's they were a little tight

It would **** up your neck over time, the tension would be unbearable for it, unless you adjust the truss rod.

12's or 13's, depending on how tight you like your strings. I use 11's in C# and they're perfect.
