I have personally found on the guitars I've built which are roughly 25.5" scale, using strings for example open "c" I would use a thinner gauged "a" string say a 30 and tune up to "C" then I use the g string tune  to "G" and the b string tuned up to "C". I like the higher tension. If I tune to open "A" I use a fatter "a" string tuned to "A", tune the d string to "E" and the g string up to "A"

hope this helps!
