OK I put the PAF Pro in and have been giving it the sonic eval. It is great, it sounds exactly the way I thought it would in the bridge position. The Mud is gone, it is bright yet balanced, it has a great feel to it on the pick attack. I kind of knew what to expect based on the one I had in the neck. This thing just made me put my Les Paul DC Standard away. The playability already had the paul beat, now the tone just made the Paul obsolete, at least for now anyway. I seem to go through tone fazes, it seems my tastes change almost on a monthly basis :-) Thank you everyone for the extra push to try the pro.
Now I have another Ibanez related question. Does anyone use 10's on their ibanez's? I was just wondering with the thin wizard neck and floating floyd if 10's would be a good switch from 9's. It made a big difference on my strat but that was such a bright guitar it needed more meat on the strings. I like the feel of 10's and have always felt that they fatten up the tone a bit. So before I go through the hassle of floyd and truss adjustments for the 10's what do you guys think? Does the solid mahogany do better with the thinner strings because of its already dark tone, or would the 10's just fatten the tone with out too much of a bad effect on the thin neck? Thanks for the help, I knew this was the place to go for my Ibanez questions ;^)
