What strings were put on the JEM20TH

I just got this guitar and seached but have not found out who is the maker of the strings and what size they are.

I do like how they feel and play and like to buy this set again.

Re: What strings were put on the JEM20TH

More than likely they are 009's

I prefer the D'Addario XL120's myself.

Where about's in CO are you located.....if I may ask??

Maybe we could get together for a 20th Jam

Re: What strings were put on the JEM20TH

My guess is .009-.042 Ernie Balls, I don't know what Hoshino strings up Ibanezes (plural of Ibanez?) with at the factory, but my guess is Ernie Ball Super Slinkys.

If I may add, I myself am partial to DRs, especially the Hi-Beams. Then again I work for them...

I emailed D'Addario Strings‏ and their responce was:

Not sure? Most companies set up the guitars with 9's. Our 9's areEXL120,(.009-.042). hope that helps? Best of luck!

They are EXL120's. It's just easier to leave out the "E" for typing purposes

Well that's a trip! I grew up in "Broomtown" (school, etc) and worked up at the Airport until just over a couple of years go! Tis a small world

I'll confirm Rich's comment. Ibanez has used D'Addario EXL120 for at least as long as I have been using Ibanez guitars, which is about 20 years.
