Can't tune my RG655 after switching string gauge
Hello everyone. I came across this site, and thought I might be able to find a solution to my problem here.
I just bought an RG655 a couple of days ago, and everything was fine until I decided to change the stock strings, and switched from .9 to .10. I've been trying to tune the guitar since yesterday, but it isn't working. In addition I just broke a string today, lol. I should note that the 4th, 5th, and 6th strings are heavier than standard in the .10 set that I applied (.28, .38, .50, respectively).
I understand that I will need to re-setup my guitar, but I would need it to be in tune first, which I can't work around. Also the bridge tilts up away from the guitar body as I tighten the strings. Like, it tilts up way too high, even after I adjusted the spring tension (maybe I had to tighten it more...).
So, how can I tune it? I couldn't in no way get it even close to tuned. The tuning is way too messed up now. I'm afraid I would break another string if I don't do it right...
