Hello guys! I need Your help for a Monster Tuning.
I'll soon buy my First Seven String Ibanez RG 7321 !

http://cgi.****.de/IBANEZ-RG-7321-7...itemZ7361374107QQcategoryZ46649QQcmdZViewItem

I think it has a 25.5 inch scale!! And I wanna put a monster tuning on it
From low to high
F#-B-F#-B-E-g#-c#
And i Want to know wich gauge of string is the best for the Low F# string
And fits perfect for that scale!
Can i use a normal Dean Markley Bass Guitar string? .70 between .80??

Please help me out!

i'd personally go with a 10 set with a 60 bottom, You Might find tho on a fixed bridge you'll be able to get away with 11's without too much hassle. I had 11's on my old UV when it was tuned to C with a .60 and sounded fine, would have liked a touch more tension, but i'd have had to have invested in a 27 XL 7

hth, and for what it's worth, thats just my own opinion, what i KNOW works for ME, many others will be able to share thier views as well, And good luck bro, Am sure you'll love it :)

Don't the GHS Boomers come with a .70 string?

get this... my other guitarist in my band put an .80 as the 7th low on his 1527.. i use a .62 on my 7620's (one of which is tuned F#) and I'm having no problems, even with a trem. so since ur getting a fixed bridge Ibanez, a .62 would work, u could even pull of a .70! with all of our advise, u could just buy the heavy gauges seperately and try them out and use which ever feels best. good luck!

Thanx dude ill try the .70 s! But i can ONLY put a bass string in it! Becouse the stores right here in my city dont have .70 or even .60 strings for Guitar!!!
So, would a .70 bass string fit in a fixed Bridge??? becouse the bigger ballend??

I think it would, like I said my friend used an .80 but it was a bass .80 and it worked so I think a bass .70 would work.. let us know here how it works! :)

I use a .068 for my 7th, tuned down to F. Works fine.

A .070 also works really well. You can go to justrings.com and order GUITAR .070 strings, instead of using a bass string.
