What gauge strings to purcahse?

I just bought an Agile 7 string with a 28.625" scale. I'm trying to figure out what gauge strings I should get for it. I'm having trouble finding anything helpful because of how long the scale is. I plan to keep it in drop G#.
Any suggestions?

Yup. Go there:

String Tension Super Thread (Got a string question? Post it here!)

You'll find a useful link in the first post, enter your scale, tuning and do some test to see if a tension would be nice given a certain type of string.

If you need further assistance, post in that thread in the future, as it prevent having too much of those thread.

Cheers!

on that scale length, you want to go light on the gauges. .56 for the low G# wil be awesome, .52 if you like lighter "djentier" tension and sound. and of course, .54 would be literally in the middle. Then i'd get a .42-.09 for the rest of the strings, no higher than .48-.10
