Switching from 9s to 10s - Adjustments needed?

I've not been playing my Jem for a long old while, but have had the itch recently. I used to play with 9s and that is how the guitar is currently set up.

I'd like to switch to 10s. Normally with other guitars I won't bother with any tweaks changing up or down one gauge. But I'm not so sure with my Jem.

Anyone else gone up from 9s to 10s, and did you have to adjust the relief or trem?

Yes, both need to be adjusted, specially the trem angle. You will need to tighten the screws located under the backplate. See Rich website for technical advise and how to do it.

Cheers man. I've set up a couple of floyd guitars, so should be ok. Was just hoping to avoid the hassle lol
