|Dylan7620||i had some 11s with a 65 on the low b, sounded tight (sorry bad pun)|

likewise, I've been using 10-60's on my 7620.
I think anything LESS than a .56 is probably a little light for a 7... .58 seems about perfect for standard tuning, IMO, with 9's.

Can RG 7-strings take gauge 11's?
Hey i currently use gauge 10's on my RG1527 7 string with 4 springs on the back only recently i've gone up to 11's on my RG 6 string and the feel and tone AND most importantly life length (my hands sweet when playing a lot) is improved a lot.
I was wondering if the general construction of the RG type guitars can take this string gauge witout too much stress on the body/neck etc. In particular the 7 strings, would it be wise to move the normal 6 strings up to 11's and kkeep the low B at a 54 as i do now? I cant imagine much more than 54 is gonna be healthy Ibanez (especially the rock models) feel so flimsy i comparison to other brands.
Well thanks in advance...so er Rich help me out
