I was at my lesson today, and my teacher had a newly acquired RG770 sitting there, so I had to play it. It was strung with 9s. I didn't realize how well I was playing on those strings. I've always used 10s, but I've begun to notice that I play a LOT better on 9s.
However, I'm concerned that...
Ok, I think a string is a string is a string. Most of them are really good for a short period of time before degrading (at least with my acidic hands). So, my tactic is go cheap since I'm going to replace them soon anyway.
I've tried some long life (Elixer) strings with some success, but I'm...
So I found a .62 to use as a low B. Upon tuning it up I can't help but feel like there's now too much tension. Anyone know what is a good gauge for a low B? I am keeping the pitch at B. The rest of my string set is .09-.46. I've seen threads about this before but couldn't find anything that...
I started writing this long, long ago but I never finished it. It has been sat on my hard drive for ages, but I figured someone somewhere might benefit from this information. So here it is... incomplete, but probably quite useful? I don't know. Maybe I'll finish it one day.
For sale is my 2004 RG1550BK. It's in immaculate condition with just 2 small dings on the body edge (pictured). Fingerboard is clean. No visible fret wear. Stock pups, Edge Pro trem. Currently set up for 9's and strung with D'Addario EXL120s.

I've got a question.
I am currently using Ernie Ball 10-46 Regular Slinky strings in standard tuning.
I want to down-tune my guitar whole step down to DGCFAd.
My questions is:
What strings should I use to get the same string tension in new tuning?
I am thinking about:
Ernie Ball Beefy Slinky...
I have a Pro Line 1660 with a Pro Rock'r trem and after I bend a string and release it the string does not return to pitch. It takes a quick karate-chop to the trem arm to get the string to return to pitch.
I have the trem set to float, set up with .009s (D'addario EXL120), and 3 spring in...
Just bought a great condition '99 RG 7620, in black with DiMarzio Blaze pickups for a great price. Already on it's way, so should be here tomorrow. Woohoo!
Never owned a 7-string before, so I'm uber excited about this one :cool: Can't wait.
Will post pics when it's here, of course!

I have 2 D'addario exl120 3-packs I am selling for $11 shipped each pack or $20 shipped for both. I just bought them a few months ago.
I have gone back to exl110s.
PMs are the best way to get a hold of me

This is something no one ever talks about, and I was blown away when I first discovered it. This guy is really on to something! It makes perfect sense, and I am baffled that no one has figured it out before. I ordered a few of these sting sets, and I have to say there really is a big improvement...
Hi dudes and dudettes I'm in a lil situation lol.
I don't know which strings I like best- I'm happy with my guage but I don't know whether D'addario or Ernie Ball or another brand?
What are ur personal opinions?
Thanks for readin happy playin!
When changing string gauges from a D'addario EXL110 7 string set(010 013 017 026 036 046 056) to a Dean Markley LTHB set(.010 .013 .017 .030 .042 .052 .060) will a truss rod adjustment be needed(or likely) to compensate for the tension on a 25.5 scale neck that is tuned down 1/2 step? I realize...
I'm selling a 2004 Ibanez Prestige RG2720 QMVV that I bought from Rich at Ibanez Rules back in June of this year. This guitar is still listed on Rich's [urlhttp://www.ibanezrules.com/used/used_sold_prestige.htm]Used Sold page.[/url]
Here's a link to some pictures of it - RG2720 QMVV Pictures...
This guitar is in excellent shape minus a few small dings which I took pictures of with a thumb tack next to them for reference. One by the trem cavity and a couple by the backplate. No Neck Cracks, and only slight polishing swirls on the body.. The pickguard has a small scratch in it not...
Ok I never thought I would do this but here we go. Due to the recent discovery that I prefer Mahogany based guitars I am letting go of my Universe.
