Has anyone gone down in string gauge before? Why? I can barely recall why i kept going up in diameters as i was learning to play the guitar, but my sixer had a .13-.56 set (drop C) before i moved to sevens. I'm now using a 10-17 for my plain strings and .30-.70 for the wound ones (tuned standard), but i'm getting really sick of the overshoot my heavy-handed technique is causing on open strings, and even on fretted ones for the low B. I got to play one of my students squire strat a couple of days ago and surprisingly enough, hardly any overshoot with the miserable .09-.46. I've had the same experience with some stock Gibsons in the past, but i figured i just don't play as aggressively on a guitar that isn't mine. Seeing as buying strings and trying for myself would require international shipping or a mortgage, what's your opinion? Experience?
