Hey, I have an ESP-LTD (one of the cheap ones ) with factory tuners in it, the regular ESP tuners. Does anybody know what is the largest string gauge a person can fit into these tuners? I think I am going to tune this guitar to some ridiculously low tuning, so I want to put big fatty strings in it so they don't flop all over the place when I want to play. I am thinking a 68 for the low E, which will probably be tuned down to B or something fun like that. Yeah.
I am not worried about the nut, that can be filed wider if it needs to be. But the 68 will not fit through the post? Do you have measurements?
