    Default Guitar strings.

    If I use them for pipes on a space marine or a dreadnought, what size should I use? I about to order some.

    Don\'t. Go to your local guitar shop and ask if they have any scrap that they\'ve just replaced.
    For marines normal 6 string guitar should suffice, for Dreadnaughts, Bass strings.
    Watch out when cutting them as they can develop tendancies to taking flying lessons at high velocities.

    I\'d suggest a cheap pair of goggle when cutting it just in case

    Nooo Dont BUY them do as suggested before and get them used for FREE!! Plus new strings are much harder to use as they havent been stretched and bent so they are less flexible. Also be sure to wash your strings well as they will have copius amounts of hand oil on them...

    A great plan. The Dragonforge ones are really useful.

    If you can get a cutoff wheel ( I recommend the diamond ones - they\'re cheap and last a lot longer than the old red one\'s) for your Dremel tool it makes a world of difference when cutting of the lengths you need. Clippers make an imprecise cut between the inner wire and the wound wire. The cutoff wheel\'s leave a fairly clean, flush cut.

    I wouldn\'t. You\'ll end up with the one size you need plus the others if you order a standard pack, and ordering just one size of string can get expensive (I used to play guitar myself). Do like Dragonsreach suggested and visit your local music stores, ask if they have any scraps you can have. The worst that can happen is they say no.
