Is an 80 gauge overkill on a 28" scale?

    .80 sounds about right to me. When using a .74 on my Mushok baritone (27.7 scale) it handles well in F#.

    27.7 scale using an 90 in F# is amazing.

    no, i think it's alright anywhere between 80-90 is good for people who pick hard. 74 is good if you wanna get that characteristic "Djent" flop and if you use thin picks and pick with minimal force it's perfect.
