I'll put it to you this way, I use the other strings more, but it's still more useful than A4 to me. I play it, but it's not always easy to integrate into everything. But it sees more attention than A4, definitely.
Hey man, I'm actually thinking of doing a 30-36" 11 string tuned down to D#0. Based on your experience with the G#0, is that pitch useful? i.e. do you play it? I can use the C#1 on my guitar pretty easily, so I feel good about going to G#0, but I'm curious what you think about going even lower still.
Cool. I'm now thinking about maybe going C#1 to G4, and then dropping everything one whole step, so it's B0 to F3. Then I don't have to sweat the O4P strings. Still gotta deal with the extra high string, so I'm not sure I'll do that.
Yeah, but I'm thinking of putting it on my current 10 because I just don't want to deal with the damn high A! But I was concerned that maybe such a thick string, with the narrow string spacing on this guy, would result in too small of an interstring spacing to be useful.
It's not bad at all. So low that it requires a little extra thinking when using it in normal play, but in a completely different (and better) way than the A4. I have a .120 on it now, and at 30" I'd definitely recommend going larger. I remember you saying your next build is going to be longer than that though, so you're good.
