What string gauge ideal for Super Wizard Prestige Neck?

Hi I have a few ibanez's that comes stringed with 9 gauge strings. I believe they are Super Wizard Prestige necks measuring 17mm-19mm.

I have thought of re stringing them with 10 gauges but are they recommended for such a thin neck like the Super Wizard Prestige? Should I just stick with 9 gauges?

IMO it's better with the 9's, but 10's won't be a problem. You'll need to do a proper set up, keep in mind : neck relief might need to be re-adjusted.

I would use either 10 or 9, because you don't want toom uch tension on that thin of a neck.

It's a personal preference thing. Although, if you cannot decide, D'Addario makes a .0095/.0115/.016/.024/.034/.044 set. Super Light Plus. Part#EXL120+. You could also try the EXL110-BT which is their balanced tension set.

I use 9.5-44 for standard tuning and 10-46 for half step down. I play jams and rgs. The beauty about 9.5-44 is that much very well the 10-46 half step down, but also gives you a slightly fuller tone than 9-42. I wish more companies were making them

I've just switched over to the D'Addario EXL125 which is basically the three high strings from a 9 set and the low three strings from a 10 set. I'm a total convert. You get the added tension on the low strings for riffing but you still get the really slinky feel on the top strings for bending.
