Particularly one with stock Grover tuners..

I'v been messing around with mine in drop A for laughs, and right now I have a set of D'addario baritone lights (13-62) and of course the 62 is a little floppy. The whole set is maybe a little tighter than 10s in standard, but it doesn't look like I can fit much more than the 62 on those damn stubby tuners.

I surprisingly don't have a lot of fret buzz, even clean it only comes through the amp when strumming hard up high on the neck. Intonation is close enough for me, but if I don't watch my heavy hand the low A will swing a bit sharp.

I'm thinking a 70 will solve it, but I have never used anything 60 or above until recently, so I have no idea how much bigger a 70 will be, or if it fits.

If someone has stuck a 70 on an LP with grovers without issue, I will go ahead and order a single.

60 is probably the biggest you can get into a stock Grover without modifications.

Well I have a 62 in there now, and a little bit of wiggle room.

Try it a .70 and see if it'll work then. It's just a string anyway, it's not a big purchase etc...

I've seen several different Grover mechanical drawings, each with a different callout for string hole size. I expect it depends on the exact model.

I guess haha. May as well get a few between 60 and 70. And another 62 just incase they don't fit.
I have fresh strings right now, which is why I figured I'd ask before bothering ordering singles.
Thanks man!

Mine are the standard rotomatics. On an epi. It's mostly winding space i'm running out of.

If they are 102's or 103's, they should have a .087 hole. Can't help with the winding space, use the lift and lock method to minimize required wraps.

Well they are 102s. So that means a 70 should fit. I will try it with the lift and lock. Thanks!
