Re: Recommend me a string gauge?
Don't bother with that tension chart. Its kind of a myth that it really helps. The fact is, it'll make more difference to your tone if you have too much magnetic mass over the pickup, than if the string is a smidgens too loose.
Essentially, to make a string that has the right tension, you end up with some strings being way more magnetic than others, and that means that string dominates your overall sound.
Just try some sets and see what you like. Don't futz around with custom singles. I did that and just ended up going back to normal gauges.
