Yeah, I used to have that gauge on my guitar at one point.

a word of advice to whoever plans on doing this...you'll need some serious adjustments if you're going to put heavy strings like that on your guitar..I did that with my yamaha without adjusting it, and it handled it well enough for a while, but it ended up damaging the neck (it had a bow of some kind that I couldn't fix).

yeah, that's correct. Not sure what the others are though.

i don't think he uses Ernie's Balls (at least not any more) cos, you know on the back of the packets, it has a list of all the bands that use em....well muse ain't on there

and they don't make 60's so it will probably be some stupidly priced crystal embedded brand which have various coats of anti-conspiracy paint on them

I use Ernie Ball Skinny Top - Heavy Bottom strings. They're .10 to .52 I think. But like Red says, don't fuck around with 13's or something, unless you're downtuning.

Shit... .90... on a guitar? Surely it must be a low B string for a 7-string, or bottom string on an 8-string?
