Here are the findings. I got a nylon g string up to Eb. Those nylon strings sure do stretch. Now on to steel strings. The Hi e up to almost g#. b string up to f#. G string up to C. D string up to G#. A string to an E. Low E string up to C#. I'm mainly fascinated by steel strings. Nylon strings are starting to interest me ,but no where near the extent of steel strings.

I've gotten a D'Addario plain steel .007 up to A on a 27" scale. It was very dangerous, but held. Mainly because my RG2228's hardware is so smooth, the only breaking point was the tuner.
Anybody ever use coated Elixers on a Les Paul? .042,s-.009,s?My goldtop is busting strings,I think its the OLD Klusons.panhead201
I have a set of elixir 10's on my LP studio now. It's in BAD need of a setup though. I went down in gauge, and have some nasty buzz now. But those strings have been on there a while, and no breakage. Are the strings breaking at the bridge? may just be a burr in the saddle.
