Quick question from a guitar newb, what kind of strings would be best for playing some of the lower tunings from drop D through drop B?
#3
10-52 will do all of those tunings, possibly 11s will too.

Hi. Can someone tell me which guitars are real 24 fret guitars and which are just 22 fret guitars with 2 extra frets added on?

So very true...

Any recommendations regarding the brand? I'm looking for a bit of a Slayer-like sound

10-52s are great for drop d, and acceptable for drop c, though I'd rather use 11s for that. Any lower and I'd go with 12s.

It's pretty much personal preference though. You'll have to try a few different sets and see for yourself.

That has little to do with the brand of strings, and a lot to do with a boosted to hell JCM.

I like dunlop for that... less jangly/twangy IMO.
I use 10-60's for drop C and they work exceptionally well, though for drop B you might be on the verge of wanting 11's.
