I need suggestions on my situation. I have an ESP B205 with EMG HZ Humbuckers and an Ibanez Soundgear 210 with J/P style pickups. I play very varied things. From System of a Down, Mudvayne, Manson, some KoRn, Iron Maiden. Mainly varied metal sounds. I was thinking along these lines: Four string with regular gauge strings, but a five string set so I can use the B string in the E slot and tune it down to C without the usual flop for System. How will this sound tuned to standard? Than just regular gauge, maybe medium for the fiver. Sound good? Suggestions? Brand names, everything?
