I'm going to be auditioning for a metal band next week that uses a B tuning on a 6 string. I have an older RG 570 I want to setup for this. Can anyone recommend a string gauge? I usually play 9s, but I know that those would be way too slack at a B tuning.

If I get in the band, I'd probably pick up a Shecter just because they make a lot of bad-ass looking 7 strings. However, no free-floating trem could seriously cramp my style. I might have to snag a Jem 777.

Ok... The journey continues. I picked up a set of D'Addario EXL115s (.011 - .049) because I am really hesitant to go to a wound 3rd for obvious reasons. However, I'm thinking it is inevitable. I can play the thing, but it's way too slack for my tastes.

By the way... I am really liking the voicing. All of the sudden most of my songs sound more evil.
