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
I use 11s on my Strat tuned to Eb.
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
what gauge are you using on the les paul??
