Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.

I play 9s on my schecter, and went a full octave below and it only barely wobbled. But the tech guy said schecter's are known for their low tuning capability.

um. yeah... ^


I've got 10's in d standard, sometimes drop c. I'd say 10s-11s

13s, **** that's insane.

Use heavy bottom type strings. 0.11's or 0.12's should do you well.

It's worse pissing when you come in from the really cold weather and your penis has shrunken to the size of a coffee stir straw and the piss feels like the blast from a super soaker.

no it isnt. many guitarist that use 25.5" scales use 12's for drop C. 10's for standard, 11's a half step down, 12 a full step down. every time you drop a note, the guage goes up to maintain tension. with the shorter scales, 25" and 24.75, the neck tension is less so the string tension needs to be more, go up a guage. there for, 13.

Quote by sandman321
what about a 25.5 inch scale


like i stated above, 12's. dont believe me? ask the guys from Killswitch Engage.
