ok, because on my GR7620, i've got 10-52 for the six, and a 60 for the B string.
And then I have detuned half step, making it A#D#G#C#F#A#D#
I had to add significant tension on the springs in order for maintain the right trem angle
I was originally one step down, and was unhappy with my sound, so I tuned up half a step in order to simulate what it would be like if I go fatter guage strings and left it a whole step down.
(the potential issue, the string tension not enough)
I found that it sounded a bit better, and fell a lot better, and got less fret buzz. But my ultimate problem didn't go away, and that's when i let the A# string ring out, the tone sounds bad.. it kinda seems like its changing pitch a little bit..
I have noticed that my guitar sounds really great with clean sounds. I am addicted to tons of gain.. I love the fat sound I can get with my 6 string in dropped D.
I love it, its so easy to get a fat sound.
How do you change the action? do you alter it at both ends? (i might need to raise the action a tiny bit to get ris of fret buzz)
