Okay, so I have a ltd 308. I just snapped my g string (giggety) and I am in the market for new strings. The guy who had the guitar before me used bass strings for the 8th and 7th strings, and they wrapped the string 4 times around the tuner and it has excess tension anyways. I really dig machine head and I am deciding to sell my 6 string. So I am wanting to tune my 8 string to F# B F# B E G# C# F#. Will this work with the 25.5 scale length? I never had any problem with it in standard tuning, I just had to be gentle with the f# so it didn't flap into anything. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
