Heaviest EADG available without custom?

  1. Just a quick question, what are the heaviest gauge production strings I can get? I recently moved up to a tighter make of string, same guage, and I like the new tension. Just wondering what the heaviest 4 strings you can buy are? My guess would be a .115 E, and on a 5 a .140 B. .60 on the G?
     
  2. I've string my four string with a 5 string set before.
    I had a .135 E string, .105 A string, and so on.
    Lot's O' Tension on the Neck, but if your neck can handle it (like mine) no problemo.

    I'm back to Regular 4 string sets.
