    Im pretty sure from different vids ive seen sin just runs EB 9-42s and its his model. i have the custom s and i run 9-42s in drop d. you just want to make sure your floyd bridge is level when changing gauges or tunings

    I just bought 9-46 hybrid slinky, so I’ll have to play with the Truss rod but I think it will be good, stay tuned.

    I don’t think 9-46 or even 10-46 would be enough to twist your guitar’s neck in drop D tuning. Just make sure you’ve adjusted the tension of the springs in the back and the height of the bridge. Also, if you messed around with your guitar’s neck, don’t mess with anything else and leave your guitar in place for a few hours at least, because it takes some time for the wood to “adjust”.

    Okay, 3 days after set my 9-46 in Drop D, the neck is straight.
    Not even needed to touche the truss rod.

    So in my opinion use hybrid gauges if you use drop tunings kid ! 🙂
