Hello!

I just bought the LTD ec-1000. What gauge should I use for standard C?
#2
what gauge do you normally use for E on a 24.75" scale? EDIT: or in case you always play in C but on a different scale length, what gauge do you normally use for C with a 25.5" (or 25" if you use that) scale length?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I guess it depends how you like your tension? I'd definitely go with 12's or 13's, personally.

I tend to go with 12-60 in Drop B and DR make a 13-65 that I like to use for Drop A# and below. Either that, or Cleartone make a 13-70 set ? Not quite the same tunings, but that might give you some food for thought!

As heavy as you can find/will fit in the tuning pegs.

It's an ESP, so it comes stock with 10-46.

You're probably going to want either 11s or 12s for playing in C. In my experience, any tuning lower than C# (even there it's pushing it) doesn't happen for me with 10s.

I had use 10-48 strings for standard E tuning, on my Ibanez grg170dx which have a 25.5" lenght scale.

^ Thanks. I'm guessing you'd probably want to use at least 12s, then. Normally most people say each half-step change in tuning is equivalent to one change of gauge (that would be 14s, would they even fit in the tuners/nut? ). Plus the smaller scale length will make things feel slightly slacker, too.
