    Hi folks - I usually string my RG550 with 10s but I also have an Ibanez AS103nt semi that I recently tried 11s on and really like the tone of the thicker strings and didn't find that guitar too much more difficult to play. I'm considering switching to 11s on all my electrics but as I like...

    ...has there been a lot more threads about strings then usual? I've probably gone through a dozen of them in the last month or so, almost all of them about gauges.

    Hi everyone. I just acquired a beautify Jem 7V WH and am struggling to get a simple answer to what i think is a simple question. I want to change the wet spagetti strings (9's) for 10's. With a strat - if you want to do this you also need to move the bridge saddles to ensure that each...

    On my Jem 7VWH, bending is really stiff compared to my other guitars.. and this is effecting my playing in general. The other guitars are a Gibson Les Paul and an Ibanez RG350EX. These guitars feel exactly the same for string tension.. and so I really dont understand why my jem is so much...

    Hey, this is a noob question. I looked through a lot of old threads, but haven't found anything... I have an Arming Adjuster on the way. I wondered if after it's installed/adjusted, can I just change strings like normal? Will I have to uninstall the ESP Arming Adjuster everytime I change...

    Up for sale is my prized Ibanez Universe. I'm selling it because I'm interested in saving up for an 8 string, and I'm preferring active pickups as of late. I'll have pictures VERY soon, I promise, detailed pictures showing everything. However for now for recent pictures, check the threads...

    I have a Custom Shop Schecter that was professionally set up a couple months ago. During the last set up, snow was on the ground; currently, it's around 70 degrees, and has been for about a week. I think that maybe this is affecting my guitar's truss rod (?). It has a mahogany set neck and...

    Is this possible without routing? I've read conflicting comments regarding installing a floyd on a strat. Some say there's no need for routing, others say it has to be done. Are the stud widths the same? I'm really digging the style of the Iron maiden strats, and I'd be willing to try the...

    I really want to tune my guitar to C G C F A D... but I have a floyd rose... I'm planning on buying a tremol-no with the deep C and always leave it fixed to make thing easier but I really don't know what string gauges I should use. I was thinking of a 11-15-22p-30(or 32?)-44-56 set but I'm not...

    I've been using EB 10's since I got my RG550 and recently I've been finding them really tense and bending is not the easiest thing in the world (I've tried stretching them A LOT). I was just wondering how much of a difference there is with 9's rather than 10's. Would 9's feel looser and help...

    NOTE I AM A NOVICE GUITAR PLAYER AND AM JUST SEEKING INFORMATION FROM MORE SEASONED PLAYERS SO I CAN UNDERSTAND THE BENEFITS OF A FLOYD ROSE. ARE THERE ANY? THANK YOU. BASED ON MY NOVICE LEVEL HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS: Coming from a newbie- I know some of you guys swear by them but I don’t get why...

    This might be a silly question. Do you guys have ever experienced that strings tension is different from one guitar to another? I feel that string tension on my RG is stiffer than on my JEM. If that’s not normal, is there a way to fix that? And what is the best low action you guys aim for?

    Ok, so I know that if you want to knwo tune down and dont want you neck to warp you need to have a gauge of string that will properly give the correct amount of tension with that tuning, and spring tension. so what Im wondering is what guage do I need if I want to right tension for tuning down...

    I've been trying to get my $ together for the new RG2007-1 limited and ran across a great deal on a NOS '06 limited RG: the RG20072. I had lusted after the RG20073 since it was introduced but never had the chance to get one. This one came along at the right time and I actually have fallen for...

    I've been considering stringing my 770 with not even slinkys which is a 12-56 set. I've looked up some stuff and people are talking about modifying the nut to accomodate the larger size and that too heavy gauge warps the neck. I dont know how much is true but rest assured I'll get as much...

    Well. I wanted to compare the RG2EX1 with a RG321, but there was no RG321 locally to compare to. So I picked up the RG7321. There is a big difference in neck feel and playablilty in my opinion. The 7321 had a neck like the Prestige or J Craft models with the 5 piece maple walnut combo. In...
