    He's said when Esseness is complete he will. I'm in line too, I just need to get a job, fast, unless he's willing to accomodate a college student on his lunch money budget.

    Use .60+ on the low B. The rest is down to your preference. Remember, the Hellraiser has an extended scale, so unless you tune lower than concert pitch, your strings will be tighter than what you may be used to.

    I personally use a standard D'Addario .09 set and plan to go .60 on the low B. I currently have a .56 and it's still a bit too floppy.

    Booyah.

    PS. Sorry for the thread hijack, Steve.

    have fun with it! I played one of these at guitar center, pretty fun guitar to play, but the neck is too wide for my taste, because of the extra 7th string.

    Yeah, it is. Hence why I said '.60+' implying that .60 is the lightest he should go.

    I get a D'Addario 6 string set .010 - .046 EKXL110
    and grab a single D'Addario 56 (they have them at my local Daddys).

    Boomers come as a set .10-.60
    or .9 -.56
