      10-46 would still be great in my opinion, just it will gradually increase to one semitone tighter on the 27" end, as if you had tuned your low E to F. Well, almost - the 6th string isn't quite 27".
      You could always pick up a more balanced set like 10-44 if that exists, which the fan would then stretch out to feel like 10-46.
      For the 27" A to match similar gauges you are looking at a 64 or 66 :)

      no idea, I didn't go around screaming, "WHO KNOWS WHAT SS.ORG IS?!". I did think about it, though.

      I was the big dude with a black backpack, and grey UH hat. Were you on Hall Monitor duty?

      Were you one of the stand-out Guardians like Rainbow hair guy, or fish hat? Or dude that had the same glasses as Corey Feldman in Stand By Me?

      Hey, maybe we'll bump into each other at RTX!

      Hey man :) Presuming a set of 10'-46s is suitable for standard for your preference, then a 66 or 68 should match well in the bass. If you are going fully custom gauges though, bump up the low E one notch as a 46 is considerably looser than the two strings above it in sets. If you do that, definitely use a 68.

      For drop G#, bump up to 11-49 (pref the 49 replaced with a 52) + 70
