  • Help Putting Together 6-String Electric Guitar String Sets

    I have lots of single strings lying around (different brands) that I wanted to put together some complete 6 string electric guitar sets, here is the Quantity and Guages:

    7 - .010 Gauge Plain single strings
    3 - .011 Gauge Plain single strings
    4 - .013 Gauge Plain single strings
    3 - .014 Gauge Plain single strings
    1 - .016 Gauge Plain single string
    1 - .017 Gauge Plain single string
    3 - .018 Gauge Plain strings
    1 - .026 Gauge Nickel Wound string
    1 - .036 Gauge Nickel Wound string
    1 - .049 Gauge Nickel Wound string
    1 - .052 Gauge Nickel Wound string

    I mainly play in Drop B but if any of you on here have suggestions on how to arrange these single strings to put together complete 6-string electric sets would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

    I figured I might only be able to get 2 full sets with this amount of Singles? Could I possibly put together 1 set for Drop B tuning and another set for say Standard E or 1/2 Step below E tuning?
