would it be possible 2 put fender bass vi stings (0.25-0.95) on a stratocaster (with bass tuning (just to stop some ppl gettin some lulz))

if it is possible how will i go about setting up my guitar for it?

ummm might be possible but be kinda hard, have to change your nut, saddles nd what ya gunna do bout your sixth string? basically everything would have to be widened.

It'd be fine, provided you didn't tune it too high and you made sure the strings fit the nut. Though I can't see why you'd bother.

Wouldn't the tension of bass strings be too much for the truss rod? You don't want your neck to snap

there are a few people that I know of that do this on various guitars. The Lead singer/ bass player for PUSA uses only bass strings on a regular guitar. I've heard Rusty Cooley did this on a few of his axes. Also I got owned by a guy who was playing a seven string Ibanez that had two bass strings on it in Guitarmagedon 2005, so I've seen it first hand. I would say a custom nut would be needed, the saddles on your bridge would have to be adjusted back I would think, and keep your eyes on the truss after you put them on, you may need to adjust it back.
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!

sell your bass and buy a 6 string. Anyway you can do this. I've done it before. I didn't even use .95 gague strings, just something like 24, 30, 42, 56, 70 and 80 gague strings. You could probably get some at your local bloody guitar shop mate!
