Is anyone tuning their baritone guitar this low? I basically want a Bass guitar tuning on the bottom 4 strings of the guitar.

I was thinking perhaps .070 would be thick enough? Does anyone have any experience with this?

Schecter does make the Hellcat 6 which is factory tuned to E Standard one octave down, and I think they use like, super heavy strings for that. the low E in that set is a 95. and thats being put on a 30" scale instrument

I'd either go with GHS boomers the set that has like a .074 i think it was as the low E, I used to have those on my strat, and tuned down to G Standard with very little flop, so I'm assuming on a 27" scale guitar it MIGHT be sufficient. But that's only because they are MADE for obscenly low tunings.

I use an .080 at 27" for E and it's nice. An .085 might be ideal for the exact sound I want, but oh well. .074 is usable for E when also tuning up to F#, and I'd only use .070 for a low E sparingly with tapping.

Use a guitar string. D'Addario, GHS and Ernie Ball make strings that thick. Bass strings will have a thicker core and I'm not too enamoured with the tone.

I just got this guitar yesterday: http://www.rondomusic.com/product4200.html

The string gauges listed can't be correct, Im pretty sure it has 64's on it.

I have it tuned to F# right now, and Drop E is too low, the low E is just too flimsy. I just bought some .080 singles to swap out the low (presumably) .064 string. Interestingly the rest of the strings are quite taut, I am pretty sure I will be able to take them even a step lower with the rest of the strings to A-D-G-C-E-A.

You need a string set for a six-string baritone guitar (not a six-string bass); Schecter sells them and Musician's Friend can probably help you pick a set if you call. But they're made for a 30" scale, on 27" they'll probably be fairly loose. If you're really set on playing this low buy a Hellcat.

I put a .080 on the guitar and it plays E pretty well, though it is a tiny bit floppy. Now, dropped to D, way too loose. I think I am going to buy a .100 or .900 just because I am insane lol.
