hey, what gauge strings will i need to put my ibanez in to B standard tuning (BEADGB low to high). i got the idea when i played a 7 string the other day and am to skint to get one. will i get the same sound but without the high E sting?

I'd say 12-56 or 12-60, I use 12-56 for BEADF#B and AEADF#B on a 25.5 scale guitar
ohai little sig.
I'd recommend you just get a 7-string set and use the bottom six strings, something like EB 7-string slinkys in whatever gauge you prefer.

Dude, you just made the most intelligent post in this entire thread. Congrats.
You could buy a pack of strings for a seven string guitar and not use the thinnest string.

EDIT: Okay, that guy beat me to it.

I do believe you just used Blink 182 and hard rock in the same sentence. It would seem you're rather confused.
I have a quote in my signature! And it makes fun of blink-182! I'm cool now!
