rg1570 in electric blue? prestige wizards, handle 010?

anyone seen them before? There are even cosmo blue and zine blue for rg1570! pretty suprising, always thought the older ones(refering to ep ones) only have mirage blue/red, royal blue and silver.

and

can prestige wizards neck handle 010 gauge strings? i have yet to try them, but from what i heard and see on forums, it seems to be very thin and im really afraid putting 010 gauge on them. afraid it will ruin the neck in a long run . . .

And i heard an article on jeff beck, they said jeff beck was intially using very light strings until hendrix told him that, that are sissy strings, and he went up to 010 and heavier. They also say most pro use 010. I am pretty sure its from guitar mag or guitar tech mag. Thats the excalt reason, why i dump my 0.08 and slowly went 010, wonder how true is that, hmm

Why do you think that 10's would "ruin the neck"? The neck is still reinforced with a trust rod and the 5 piece necks are that much stronger. Heck, you can use 11s or 12s on a Prestige neck if you want.

Well, I was originally a classical guitar player, and actually a les paul user as well (if you count copies as one). I seen a wizard II, it seem so thin and scary, ruler is how i will describle it. I really cant imagine how those neck can take tension from 010 in a long run. Will it face warp or whatever? I am really scare. Yeah maybe its me, but comparing my lp copy and wizard II, the difference is pretty insane, so i have this mindset of wizard neck being fragile

With a few minor adjustments .10's will be fine. If you doubt the information you'll get here stop in at your local music store (Ibanez dealer) and ask too.
If you still question it, then stick to your "baseball bat" neck LP wannabe!

BTW, I used 11s on an Ibanez PGM100 I used to own for about 4 years. I never had a problem with the neck. I also use 10s on my PGM301 and have not had any problems with it either.

DONT try 11 or 12s you cant tune the guitar properly.. unless you can come up with some extra heavy springs I have 11s in a 1570 and I have 3 springs and the claw drawn up till theres no more threads on the screws exposed... 9s preferred 10s if you must . youll just go insane trying to get 11s to work.. and you have to ask yourself why 11s anyway.. Its not a telecaster

Or add extra springs. It's not that hard, I've done it before. Though most people use heavy gauge strings when they tune their guitars below E.

Sorry, but this is nonsense.
You can use 11s or 12s with these necks. Just add another spring or two and adjust truss rod accordingly.
If you set it up right--heavier gauges will work fine.

This is because your guitar wasn't set up correctly. You can go nuts trying to keep 9's in tune if your trem isn't leveled.
BTW, I've played 9's for over 20 years and I don't consider myself a sissy. Jeff Beck can bite me!
Thought I will admit as I'm slowly migrating to fixed bridge guitars I might throw a set of 10's on a guitar for grins.

You can totally use 10's on it. My bro has the exact same guitar, uses 10's on it; just as ppl already told, be sure it's properly set-up and you'll be just fine!
