I've heard that you need to use bigger strings for lower tunings, but is there a difference between using a fixed bridge and a tremolo like a Floyd Rose.
Ex; I use D'addario 11-49 to tune to Eb, drop C#, dropC or drop B.

tension is tension

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

if you embrace inaccurate intonation it can be quite arousing.

you don't "need" thicker strings, thicker strings just help compensate for the lower tuning (less slack) - as long as you are using a fixed bridge, tuning a string gauge doesn't matter much - now if you are using a trem that is a different story since you have to equal out the spring tension first.

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

That's what I thought because I only use Fixed Bridges and I've never experience any tuning issues.
