What gauge of strings would you reccomend for an electric guitar if a person was wanting to tune down to B standard? thanks

A 7-string guitar.


Ya, those ARE cheaper than a pack of strings.

0.13's

And what about on the low end? .60 maybe?

Christ!

What band plays in B standard?!?

I'd but a baritone guitar.

I think Soilwork does LOL, but they make it sound decent.

WAY too low for a regular guitar to play in IMO....might get close if you want to dedicate the guitar to solely that tuning, because it's going to need a lot of work. I use 11s for Eb standard, 12s for D standard.....for my guitars, they do well with one gauge higher with every step I go down.

Following this logic, you'll need 15s for B standard :p

I don't believe those even exist....

My extended scale schecter has a 60 on the low B, and it plays very nicely. You'll need heavier for a regular scale guitar.

So, you'll either have to find a hybrid set, with something like a 64 on the low B, or get a 7 string or baritone.

Hope that helps.
