    Yes, that makes more sense. They are standard electric guitar strings so you are free to experiment to find sizes and tensions you like. If you do low G, you can use the top 4 strings of almost any...

    It's just held in place by tension by the real string. I wasn't really expecting it to work but it's never fallen out yet. I had to do it on two strings but they are all unwound. You could have a...

    I'd say it's on the low end of normal. It's a relatively simple job to get a new nut and/or saddle to raise the action. Whether or not that's worth it on this instrument is up to you.

    On the UG1 - that's also a good set but with the typical round wound characteristics. I have that set at A-to-A on my 17" tenor scale, so I agree with Peter they wouldn't work for that tuning on 20"
