Yeah, there is actually a big difference in tone when you get up to these guages... A bit tricky to play at first, but I'm not a shredder, so I really prefer great tone before playability. I have app. 3,0 mm string height on low E at 12:th fret... That is about 0.12 inches. When you get used to it, it's not any trouble playing. At least not if you're not a shredder. I'd like to have a set similar to the EB "beefy slinky", but with a .020" 3:rd string... Wonder if there is something near that?
