I bought a copy of a Fender Jazz Bazz and I thought of using the same tuning as a cello, but I don't know what gauge would work.
halp? D:
i'd just buy a 6 string pack and ditch the two low strings. i can't imagine why you'd want to use a cello tuning though, its tuned in fifths. if you tried to play a scale you'd be using four fingers per string w/o shifting. thats gonna be a huge stretch.
For some reason I'm more comfortable that way, and I'm doing an E-bow to see how it will work.
