Often is seems my D and G stings get lost in the mix in a band setting. Properly adjusted pickups is certainly a factor, but I'm contemplating string guages lately. What affect does string guage have on its output? Is using a heavier guage D and G string (.050 and .070) going to strengthen their output relative to the A and E? Taken from the other side, would smaller A and E strings (.080 and .100) balance better with a .045 and .065 D and G? My quirky side wants to try a mixed set comprised of .050, .070, .080, .100. Anyone ever tried this? What is stopping me is the drastic difference in sting tension....the D and G would be cable stiff relative to the normal tension A and E. I tired a .050-.105 set of XL's on my P recently...very tight tension and seemed to be very boomy on the E. FWIW, I like fairly high tension so I can dig in when drummer/guitar player get out of hand, but these were a bit too tight overall.
