What size of tuner stringhole, for 7th string? I want use 0.080 gauge, for F1 tune

Todd B. ESP

Hi bucky,

String hole size is 1.8mm which is 0.07087”, so you have to enlarge the string hole to use 0.080” gauge.

what is the maximum string gauge supported

Todd B. ESP

Hi bucky, We've never seen anyone try any string gauge that didn't work. If you select a reasonable gauge it should be fine. It really depends on the tuning you are going for. currently we use 59 - 10 gauge. You could put something up to a 75 or 80 gauge but I would only recommend thicker gauges if you are tuning down more than standard. Also keep in mind you will need to have the nut string slots filed out to fit the larger strings and you will have to adjust the neck truss rod and action/bridge & intonation.

Will the black LTD version ever come back?

Hi Colin, Not sure but it's a possibility. Not sure how long the sparkle versions will be available. Thanks for your comment.

Hello,

Can we please get the dimensions of the Thin U Neck?  What is the depth of the neck at the first fret?  

Thanks.

Hi JEff, The Thin U for a 7 string baritone will be 21mm thick at 1F and 23mm at 12F. It is slightly thicker than the 6 string version which is 20mm/22mm.
