    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? :)

    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
