Well yesterday I bought a set of Zakk wylde signature ghs boomer guitar strings. Gauge is 11. And when I put the low E string on it won't fit through the hole. Does this mean I can't never put a 11 gauge on my guitar???

Yeah. GHS Boomers are kind of crap anyway. Use somthing like Dave Mustaines (SP?) progressives.

no it just means that your nut slot isnt wide enough. If you really want to use those huge strings your going to need to file your nut a little bit to widen it. also, the 11 gauge is a high E string, not a low E.

oii. my bad lol. that will take some time but o'well. I like your rig.

did you mean wont fit thru the cut of the nut? or did you mean a different part.

if it's the cut, yes it can be filed, but you shouldnt just take a file to the cut, too large and you will get string rattle in any smaller gauge.

plus you need to make sure to file in an upward slant up to the board from the headstock side. or you will get first fret buzz.
