Kind of a simple (bit noobish) question, but what kind of strings do I need for B tuning? I have a set of 0.11-0.56 but I'm afraid that that's too thin, or is it ok?

Yeah me too I like em flabby I was just a little worried it would be way too thin. But thanks for your advice, I'm off to restring my axe!

Don't put it in drop B unless it's a baritone or a 7 string IMO. I dropped down to B and it sounds too muddy because you lose string tension. That won't happen with a baritone.

I've had my guitars to B several times I just forgot what minimum thickness I should have. And it didn't sound muddy at all

.054 is the lowest I would go with a B IMO.
