lowest I have gone on a guitar of that scale is c#


I like giant jazz strings on a 24.75 guitar for C-Standard. Maybe 13s with a wound G. Those heavy plain Gs sound stupid to me.

Agreed, that's how I've always done it. Heavy plain wire Gs sound and feel awful.
Good deals with: AngryGoldfish, Officer Bukowski, casterbro, amnesiac305, Achtane, Snufkino, Tom Dalton, DarkAxel, JamesSGBrown, casperh7, Tristan, intothegroove, Gigahearts_FX, alalalkasar, nightterrors, Schlatte, Dandolin, jskadiang

i put ernie ball not even slinkys on pudding's sg coz that's all i had on hand. i normally use d'addario jazz mediums for gibson scale.

it doesn't really matter to me either way if my third string is wound or not when i'm tuned low, i just want my strings to stay in tune. on gibson style guitars the second and third strings always go out of tune, especially after reslotting the nut and saddles for heavier strings.

interesting,

I am an unwound G person even on my acoustics

currently use 10-52 ernie balls in standard tunings
and 11 in anything lower


not sure I would ever want to go to a 12 set kinda like a little flub when tuned low

i did think i'd hate the plain third but i ended up not minding it.

i use dunlop 10-52s on all my guitars tuned to e standard. i wanna try the dean markley blue steel 11-52s though, the 10s are feeling too light.

12s are loose and a bit flubby down in c. 13s are taught.

I mean. Idk im a fucking neanderthal when it comes to fine details of string winding.

To me, the NES's work well so far. Enough give where I can do bends comfortabley, but big enough to handle the low tuning.

For a first time experience with the tuning, its been a good one.

Is that a light shade of pink? Or is that just the carpet reflecting on it. Looks gorgeous either way!

Mostly a '78 MusicMaster... body, bridge, neck plate and neck pickup are original. Body has been poorly painted dark brown, routed for a bridge humbucker and had a Bigsby at some point in its life... Got a Duo-Sonic-ish guard from WD and put a Duncan Quarter Pounder in the bridge - volume/volume/output setup for now, but I'll probably change that to selector/volume/out or selector/phase/out because who needs a volume pot anyway...

L to R:

Mustang from parts:
'76 body + '66 pickguard + '71 bridge + '65 tuners + '69 trem unit + '69 neck (stripped when I had it, now it has been refined to match with the body) + MojoPickups Mustang pickups + 60's control plate + CTS/Switchcraft/Cloth wire + Cream Coronado style knobs + super cheap chinese Strat cream closed pickup covers.
My favorite guitar (along with my Jaguar, also made from parts)

'66 Musicmaster II:
all original except for a "new" (vintage correct) '66 pickguard and the extra super cheap chinese Strat cream closed pickup cover.
I sent the original pickup to MojoPickups, needed a rewound.
Super comfortable 22'5" "A" neck, and full of Mojo guitar...a keeper.

Duo Sonic from parts:
'65 body + '77 neck + an old Allparts pickguard + '66 bridge plate + '69 tuners + '66 control plate + CTS/Switchcraft/Cloth wire + Red Coronado style knobs + MojoPickups Mustang pickups with Tele specs.
This is basically my Telecaster :lol: , I love her too...

Anyway,
It was some very fun months...
Looking forward to the next months!!!!!!
