My buddy needed some strings so his dad went to go get them, long story, so anyway, i guess he tells the guy he needs .011 gauge electric strings and i guess the guy gave him some GHS Boomers that were .011 to .70!! Now when my buddy got them he tried it out and it didnt even fit through the tuning! so he calls me up and tells me the story, so blah blah later he gets the right strings

MY QUESTION IS:
What in the hell do you need those strings for??? I have some 7 string guitar strings on my 6 and they only go up to .56
Thanx for reading and replying!

Low tunings

You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

TS, whenever I see your username, I misread it as "isuckhardcocks."

Just had to get that out there.

Some people just like to downtune.

isn't it 1.35?






Pwnd lol. It is indeed 1.35, as .135's are just a bit thicker than .13's.

What about 135's.

Yeah that's right no decimal.


Oh god.

Well if you get used to it you could maybe battle agaisnt Paul Gilbert, it's his special gauge.

Or maybe not since he has been using those forever

I've run into that problem before. I strung up my shitty bullet with some thick gauge strings to so I could play in drop C and B and such without fucking with my good guitar and the tech at the shop recommended I get .11's and swap at the big string for... I don't remember, but it didn't fit in the nut!

so I got a small file and some fine sand paper and very carefully filed the nut so it was wide enough for it to fit. I probably wouldn't have done it on a nice guitar without consulting someone who knows more about it than me, but it works fine!

i use 12s - 56s on my 6 string guitar................ fun fun fun
I am me. Live with it.
#17
I had them.


I love them for my low tunings. They are great for C to A tunning. I play ****ing brutal **** so.


If I have two guitars I would put them back on my guitar but I only have one so. BTW, they feel sweet at C standard.

Once I bought an 11-56 set, the .56 didn't fit in the nut at first but eventually it did. I tried standard tuning but it felt like it was about to snap. So I tuned Eb.

Greatest cleans ever.

thick strings give you really great tone, SRV once said "Some players sound heavy because they tune their guitars so low. I sound heavy because I use the thickest strings possible."

and it's true!
