ok so rite now im currently using ernie ball power slinky strings on my epiphone les paul custom, which i tune in Eb, and tomorrow im going to pick up my schecter S-1 blackjack, which has a 25.5" scale neck...if i also tune this guitar down to Eb, what string gauge should i use?? should i use the same as my les paul or a different gauge because of the neck
the bigger the scale on the guitar, the more tension it puts on the strings, so putting it in Eb really shouldn't be a problem with your current gauge strings, but going heavier wouldnt hurt at all. Using a heavier gauge would probably play easier and better on a 25.5 scale guitar
