How can that Z guy still build guitars when he's busy typing all that insulting crap?

I didn't mention in in my Great Epiphone Scandal post, but I tried out finally tried the set on ZOG .010s that Mitchell "soggybag" Hudson was kind enough to gift me. (It took me a while to get around to them, because I don't generally use .010s on anything, but they were Linda's preference for her Epiphone.)

Nothin' wrong with them — but nothing special I could detect either. Any special qualities definitely went way over my head.

You are using heavier strings at least 11s or 12s ?

.011 for standard tuning and .013 for lower tunings. But Linda's guitar was strung with ZOG .010s.

I notice a difference in the tension especially on the bass side. Not a huge difference, similar to a light top heavy bottom set. Though it's more like regular top and heavy bottom set.

So is every "light top/heavy bottom' set that I've seen. Still think this dude is full of poo. It doesn't take a rocket scientist (or a self-obsessed boob) to create custom string sets. I've been doing it for years for my steel guitars.
