Re: Can I put .12 guage on my RG
I've done it before, tuned to C. Strings did not fit in the nut too great but it was better than tuning to A w/ .63 on the low string! It will sound like a$$ if you don't have the right pickups in there. Tuning low like that w/ a floating trem is always a serious pain too. Really hard to get everything in-tune and harder to get it to stay that way.
Also, something to note, you'll likely not achieve good intonation. My RG470 got close but never on the money.
