Sithu Aye, using Strats and the wrong string gauges for djent since 2011
What bridge is your 7 string ? Because i have a strat with a ffloyd rose and i can get away with lighter strings on that with lower tunings than a fixed bridge.

Then again, the only reason i got a 7 string was to play along to you and periphery, if you went to drop A (A E A D G B E ) i wouldnt need heavy strings anyway I dont think a 52 would work, a 66 is flappy enough ><
