I would like to know how one would go about tuning to B-standard on a Gibson guitar. Amon Amarth does this, and I have read that they use 13 to 62 string gauges.
My '84RI Flying V has some pitchproblems when tuned to drop C. It has 12-56. The pitch rises when I pick the low C-string - I do hit 'em hard - that whole story. I don't know if a 62-string would be better, but it would create intonation problems since the
slider in the bridge is as far back as it can go.
My question is if a special, extra wide TOM-bridge exists that would allow for better intonation possibilities.
I know a Gibson guitar isn't the best choice for B-tuning, but since Amon Amarth does it, and I am very much into them and to Gibson guitars.
Sorry if it's been up a million times.
Amon Amarth is just one of many to do it on a LP or PRS. I don't know what to tell you really other than that it can be done on a stock TOM bridge, speaking from experience.
