I've been getting into drop A a lot lately on my acoustic. It's a yamaha F335. What's the heaviest string gauge I could get to fit through the tuning posts? I've heard .070 doesn't fit.
what you really need is a new amp...

Or a bass... There are clever acoustic "baritone" guitars now that should be perfect....


Trying to put such extreme strings on a standard instrument may result in damage, even if tuned down, and will almost certainly require that the nut be re-slotted.
Seems to me if you are looking for a super-low range then either a 5-string acoustic bass or a baritone guitar would be the way to go.
Thought acoustic string we're .13 tops

That's for the high "E". He's talking about the bass strings.

D'Addario "heavy" strings go from .014 to .059, for instance. I don't know where you'd go to get a .070 string... That's really extreme.
