Hi there!
the other day I became the proud owner of 25,5"-27" headless multiscale guitar.
I noticed, using 10-52 strings, I can lower the tune to Drop B tuning and guitar sound is revealed below C - Drop C tuning. but i not sure,can i use strings thicker than 54-56,because past owner has a problems with setup strings - broken screws crackers.
I ask for advice, who had experience with such instruments?what strings suitable for every tune?

yes you can , it depends on if your nut slut is big enough for the larger strings , if they need to be widened a luthier should be able to fix rathr quickly , you could you tube it if you want to try it yourself.

If there are cracks or broken screws , I dont think that is a string gauge problem ,but it sounds like you might want to have a good tune up

i solved this problem with a little long and high-quality gotoh screws and strings surely fixed,an old owner tried to set 10-60 strings,as i heard.
