    Could not find a specific thread about this. In short:
    what´s the maximum string gauge (for the lowest string) you were able to stick thru the hole on the back of the RG8 without having to drill there? I´m not talking about the tuners.
    I had no problems with the 080 of the EB Skinny Top Heavy Bottom set but would like to replace it with a 085 or 095 single string from DAddario soon.

    I put a 94 on my RG8 when I had it. The tuners where the only problem.
