Re: Herman Li EGEN18 String Gauges / Brand
I think the original set might just have been a standard 10 set, because the top strings now feel lighter as well. You'd think this would be officially documented somewhere - eh? Come on Ibanez - this should be listed somewhere!
I don't think the E string was as heavy as a 54. Plus, I don't think Ibanez would put a custom sized set on a floating bridge guitar and then not tell anybody what the custom gauge was. At least I'd hope not.
Before I purchased this guitar, I usually played with 9's but for some reason on this guitar they feel too light. It might be because I got used to playing with the heavier set (whatever they were). Or could it be a string tension thing, since I had to significantly loosen the string tension to get it in tune with the bridge straight?
