See on my thinner neck guitars I prefer thinner strings... (11-49)

But on my wider neck guitars thicker strings are needed so that it feels.... the same gap between strings.

My thinner neck I measured and its 40mm wide while the thicker neck (which seems to be a standard) is 42mm, what would be the gauge string for the same distance between strings?

Divide 2 by 10 and then add that to the gauge that's on the first one.

So, lemme get this straight I need a .51?


I guess, even though I've never heard of 11-49's, you sure they aren't 11-48's?

Ok, how bout you measure that in inches, cause string guages are measured in inches, not mm. But a 2mm difference is hardly anything, you shouldent really even notice any difference, but mabey try .12's or .13's if your so nit picky on keeping the same feel for a different guitar.

Nope, these are Daddarios sir, where they must be one more than power slinkies!



Ah, ok. What tuning are you gonna be in?

EDIT: There's a flaw in my math, don't listen to it.

Is it close enough?



Does the small gap difference really cause you that much bother?
Thicker gauges might make the gaps between the strings the same as your other guitars, but it'll also make it harder to do things like bends.

I don't bend all that much. Even when I do, its not a drastic bend...

And yes, the small gap does.

When I'm going quickly between strings I seem to be damping myself because I am so used the small gap!

The minute differences in string gauge compared to string spacing is going to be a least, extremely almost unnoticcable, and probably you won't be able to notic e it at all.

If it really is that big of a deal, you'll just have to get used to playing both kinds of necks, it's what I did.

.51"

That's a thick string. More like a cable, really.

im running a .56 E string right now on my washburn, purely for finger strenthening purposes when i go back down to .48's, but there is smaller gap compared to my les paul which has 48's, try it out to taste id say, you will also be able to go back to your other guitar and play it like butter, it really is a BIG difference.. also, if you simply get used to the other guitar it will help too, ALL guitars play differently

If you're gonna put much heavier gauge strings on, be careful when you put the low E in. It could break the nut if it's not cut wide enough.

lol, nobody even clued into my post

Guys, they're .048, or .046, or .009, etc.

.48 is a freaking elevator cable.
