About a month and a half to 2 months ago I've bought a Les Paul, so today I decided to get new strings, I'm into detuning the guitar so I bought some "Not Even Slinky" Ernie Ball strings. I put on the low E string to see how it played, it sounded a little different, but I'm guessing it might be a different kind of material the string is made out of, but when I played it along with the A string, it sounded pretty bad, is this because the string isn't "meant" for the Les Paul or because I put it on wrong or what? Because I'm pretty sure I put the string on right. Any ideas why?

Oh and the new string gauges are:

12
16
24P (I don't know what the P is for)
32
44
56

Well new strings always stretch to a point, was it out of tune bad or what?

I don't know, the gauges seem to be a bit of difference if that has some effect on it, which I'm guessing it does?

Oh yeah. Take that guitar in and have it set up. You'll warp the neck and all kinds of crazy stuff that isn't good if you don't adjust the truss rod.
