    Replacing my .60 string with a .65 bass guitar string? Anybody else tried this? I know theres probably plenty of people that would advise against it but due to the lack of options right now im just gonna take the chance and put a bass string on my 7 string. Not thrilled about spending $30+ on a...

    ALL: Don from D'Addario here - in an effort to better dial in new string sets, we've put up a Survey, asking for your insight. What guitars are you using? What Tunings are you most using? Gauges, etc - We hope to introduce some new sets later this year and with some guidance, we'd like to have...

    Today I witnessed the weirdest change that a new (or just good) string might have compared to an old one (or just bad). I have this uv70p, and before I sent to Germany for the known problems, I remembered it had killer harmonics everywhere. When I got it back and after all the repairs, it was...

    Hey guys, I just got an Rg7620 w/a low pro 7. It came with .010s but I prefer .009s so I plan on replacing them. Do you guys have any recommendations on strings? I'm pretty sure all Ibanez save sig models come with D'addarios; do you find they are best? What about "reinforced" strings from...

    I have an rg550xx that needed a neck. I bought a 91" rg550 neck thinking it would be spot on. Well I was wrong and there is couple gaps but its pretty damn close. Im not worried about looks as its player. How off does the string alignment look here?:

    Hey guys! I've been told this is *the* Ibanez site so I figured I'd better sign up after purchasing my first Ibby. Essentially, I removed all of the old strings gave it a good clean down as it's not been loved in a long time. Upon putting on a fresh set of Slinky 10's, I quickly realised that...

    Good day my friend's, I have a question that I need someone with some more experience than me to answer. So yesterday I was playing my guitar, no problems, as usual, and when I put my guitar back on its wall hooks, about 5 minutes later 4/6 strings just snapped all at once. Any explanation to...

    Hello. Not meaning to double thread but i cant really delete or close the other thread. I have a custom string set on my guitar in which the wound strings balance perfectly and are all d'addarios. However in the 3 plain strings, 1 is D'addarios, 2 Dunlops, and are all the same gauge type...

    Hello forum users. I've read online the opinions of some people, in which they consider that Elixir strings have more tension than uncoated strings at a given gauge. For the sake of comparison, i'm used to D'addario nickel wound strings (non coated). Do they really have more tension than...

    Here's my newest lesson video! My students constantly come to me looking to improve their string bending… the cleanliness, the intonation, the whole nine yards. To me, thats always an area of someone's playing that i can hear and tell if they are a beginner or a more advanced player. So i...

    Okay everyone, I have joined a band with great potential, and I am so excited to see what happens! Influences included periphery, animals as leaders, intervals, tesseract, a day to remember, etc. I was just curious the lowest tuning I could use on my universe while still maintaining a good...

    Hi everyone, I feel like a real Noob asking this question lol. But the frets on my Jem 7VWH need cleaned a polished pretty badly so I plan to take that on this weekend. I'm going to use painters tape to completely cover the fretboard (other than the frets of course), and use 0000 grade steel...

    Just got my first 26.5 scale 7 string ibby. Always been a 25.5 player. Been a 9-42 user, have occasionally tried different gauges but always found that 9-42 suits me best. What gauge would feel the same on my new 26.5? Im struggling to find a set that all match up using the string tension...

    I came back from a long vacation back home to Montreal earlier last week, and before I could sit down and play my RG, I noticed the high e string was broken. It broke quite randomly, but since i had recently slapped strings on it, I was just going to buy a new pack and install the e string only...

    Just wondering as I'm trying to pinpoint why I cannot stop playing this thing. Pickups are great, neck is fantastic but was also wondering what brand strings come from factory with them? Anyone know? Also, does Ibanez use a standard brand of strings for all their guitars? Thanks ahead!

    Today, i went to my guitar shop for new strings- my current ones are old, dont stay in tune, and smell. The guy at the shop asked me why i wanted the string change, as they apparently looked perfectly new, and i told him why. He then started fiddling around with the bridge, lowered the spring...

    Has anyone checked these strings out yet? I just bought a set online and they are on the way. I have to say I'm very interested in what these are all about.
