Hello guys

Im going to have my 7 string in G.
I might alternate the 7th string between Ab, G, Gb.

Im thinking of a .72 string
And what about the rest of the guitar?

Im thinking of tuning it: (if in G)

G - D - G - C - F - A - C

Would that be correct?

Hey Erik smile.gif I've been doing a little research and for G standard you could go with the Ernie Ball set having 70/56/44/32/22w/16p/12p
