Re: not even slinky on rg770, too heavy?
That is drop C tuning.
I play my hardtails with the "Skinny Tops Heavy Bottom" Slinky's (10, 13, 17, 30, 42, 52).
With the mix of string gauges this way you can still get the low notes of the drop tuning and still have usable higher strings without the strings getting too "flabby" as they do from regular 9's or 10's. I wouldn't get any heavier on gauges than that on a trem guitar. Again, I use these on fixed type bridges rather than trem equiped guitars.
Ibanez states 9's are what the guitars and trems are designed for so I wouldn't stray too far from their design for safety reasons.
