Thinking of putting 9s back on the JEM (A Personal Adventure)
I've been playing with string gauges a bit recently...
I'm definitely happy with having 10s on my PRS Custom 24 (25" scale length) and on my Strat (It just 'feels right' on that guitar).
I did the same change on my JEM - put 10s on it. I got used to it, but am thinking of going back to 9s. Why? Well, when I bought my RG1XXV it had 9s on in the shop -- and I was flying over the fretboard! It just had the total RAWWWK feel to it, especially with vibrato, pinch harmonics etc.
In other words, it just seems to be that 10s just don't 'suit' a JEM, but they do a Strat. I guess I tend to go all out on a JEM, whereas the Strat use is more, ahem, 'thoughtful'.
A personal story, I know, but just wondering if this rings a bell with any of you?
