RGA121/Gibraltar Bridge Owners??

hey guys, first post, I recently bought an RGA121 used at guitar center.

I wanted to put some heavier strings on it for Drop C tuning (11-54) and it seems like the bridge can't handle the lowest string. The winding on the ball end of the string is too thick too fit... (i've tried a couple of brands) a guitar should be able to hold an 11 set though right??

What would you guys do in this situation? Thank you for your time

Re: RGA121/Gibraltar Bridge Owners??

I had the same issue when i changed string gauges. I put Ernie Ball 12-56 on and I just had to wiggle it a little to get in in the bridge. On a side note, theres some orange crud on my bridge I'm guessing from palm muting and sweaty hands... any idea how to get the tarnish/oxidation whatever it is to come off?
