Ah, the old 'all other things being equal'--not usually the case. A solid string reduced from 16 to 17ga might play predictably, BUT, most strings are not mono construction. String X in 17ga may get more of its playing characteristics from the core rather than the additional wraps in the same string in 16ga. Lots o' other factors to consider, as well. Even multis may differ in construction from gauge to gauge rather than simply being more or less 'material'.
