Can wizard 1 neck be installed with daddario 10-46 string?

I plan to change my string from d addario 9-42 to d addario 10-46 on my ibanez rg with wizard 1, one of the thinnest neck type.

Is there possibility of neck cracks and breakage due to increased string pull tension of 10-46? Thanks

I've been playing 10s on thin necked RG for years without any problems.

I restore and build Archtop style guitars. There are older off brand guitars without truss rods that will eventually bow the neck, but this is over 30-40 years of 13ís on a guitar without a truss rod.

Youíll be fine, truss rods and the bond between the beach and fretboard strengthens the neck incredibly. I have a recently acquired S470 with a broken headstock I scored for $60. The guy I bought it from said it looked like it tossed into a wall. When I looked at it, the fretboard was there and complete, no scratch marks or anything indicating it was thrown. Kinda think it was dropped on the headstock.... off a building.

Bond between the neck and fretboard**

Thanks for the reply. Is there a possibility of neck bend that turns to high string and fret action due to strong string pull tension?

it is possible that the guitar could need a truss rod adjustment. I use to play 10-52s in standard on an original wizard neck without any issues other than a simple truss rod adjustment.

You'll probably also need another spring if your guitar has a floating tremolo. You'll have to increase spring tension with the increase in string tension to keep it floating in the neutral position.
