Question Jem7VWH Stock Strings Question

Does ANYONE know what the stock brand and string gauge the newer Jem 7V (white) comes with? I just bought a Jem7VWH 2012 model. The stock strings sounded great but i just changed the strings to Ernie Ball 9's and the string tension is so tight i have to tighten the spring saddles to keep my Edge trem flush... doesnt make sense im pretty sure it came with 9's so if i replaced them with super sling Ernie Ball 9's why is the action of the strings dramatic enough that im screwing down the spring plate to even it??

Re: Jem7VWH Stock Strings Question

IIRC The stock strings are D'Addario 9-42 gauge (EXL120). Have you stretched the strings enough? In my experience, D'Addario seems to have a different feel/tension from the nect comparable EB strings.

Re: Jem7VWH Stock Strings Question

Ive stretched them they are still streching a bit.. the trem is slightly more stiff i like a very sensitive trem and a good flutter effect but i cant find ways to to adjust those things without changing string gauges. If anyone has any tips on how to lighten the tremolo/trem bar sensitivity and and tips i could use to get a better flutter sound out of my original stock Edge trem let me know plz
