Custom String Gauge

I cant find any string manufactures that make odd numbered string gauges... for example they will have singles in .050 and .052 but not in .051

Does anyone know where I can find what I am looking for?

Re: Custom String Gauge

stay in tune strings, or sit strings will make you custom string gagues. They are awesome strings really cheap and really dependable.

Re: Custom String Gauge

I have equipped last week my Ibanez Prestige with .052 on the low E with D'addario strings, but I'm 100% positive I had spotted a 0.51 somewhere on the D'addario stand.
But both ways I think that when we get to the thickness beyond 0.46, millimeters only cause slight variation. It depends on how much detail of tone we're trying to seize here.
