Firebirds and 13-56 ok?

Recommended Posts

Looking to buy a bird. Will be set up with 13-56 strings. Any issues with that gauge in the various styles of tuners fitted on birds?

There shouldn’t be any issues as far as I can tell. Some major things to make sure are ok are the nut slots and the neck relief. Other than that, the other things included in a setup should take care of anything else to accommodate. Best wishes in your new guitar if you decide to pull the trigger on it!

Out of curiousity why 13's?

 

tuning down to C standard... retains the right amount of tension... and the thicker strings thicken the tone too, but mainly due to the tuning.
