Re: 7620 as 6-string baritone? or restring my RG570?
Haha, Amen to that. I should have clarified by saying that the strat in question is equipped with a JB in the bridge. Either way though - the only serious issue IS the need to file down the nut, but I found that if you file it to fit .056 to .012, you can somehow string the guitar up with a .070 to .013/.012 set without any trouble. And oh yes, it sounds huge on most guitars I've tuned that way.
But, in regards to the issues at hand - a locking nut (such as that on a 570) will accomodate a .070 guage or heavier... not that jerrye777 has any intention of playing on cables like that, but it is implied that he can use anything lighter with no issues. But as a warning: anything above .068 has a **** load of trouble fitting into the tuning pegs of most stock Ibanez guitars..... and does anyone have a good way of saying Ibanez, but in plural form? Ibanezes?
