Drop C tuning on my S540...string guage?
I have 9's at standard tuning currently. I would like to make the minimal amount of adjutments to the trem springs, truss rod, intonation, etc. It has the wizard I neck (thin neck). I would also like to be able to purchase a "standard" set of strings which are readily availible (D'addirio or GHS). I'm thinking 10's or 11's. I can't imagine 12's on that guitar. I have 3 springs in the standard parallel configuration. I don't want to add a spring. I'd prefer to keep the parallel setup, but an arrow setup isn't out of the question.
Basically, I want to offset the required tension for the trem by selecting the best gauge string at drop C tuning.
So what do you guys think? 10's, 11's?
I'd also consider a tremelno down the road for this guitar.
BTW...it's an original edge trem.
