    Thanks. I'm definitely sticking with the added low; whether or not it's G# or F# though is up in the air. I like keeping the rest of the strings down a step like a bass, so probably F#.

    Yup! Here they are: I'm actually waiting to get my A4s from Garry - the last 5 all broke.
    Are you keeping the G#0 or going back to the A4?

    C# .090
    F#. .066
    B.. .050
    E.. .038
    A.. .028
    D.. .020
    G.. .014
    B.. .011

    Hey do you happen to know the gauges you're using on your 10 off-hand? I lost the paper with the ones that I used to use and I'm looking to make a new set.

    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.

    Eh, you might think it would get in the way but it's really not that noticeable to me. The difference is only slight, so it doesn't bother me.

    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.

    Hey how are you liking that G#0? I'm tempted to go that route on mine and ditch the A4 as well.
