hey wondering if the jems are specifically built for the .9/.10 gauges. how well would .11 work?
#2
Correct me if im wrong, but i dont think most guitars are built for a specific gauge of string. If you the intonation, i think the jem will handle most string Gauges.
#3
No, the world will implode.

But really, if you set the guitar up you should be able to handle pretty much any (commonly used on electric guitar) string gauge.

any guitar can be used with any gauge strings with a jem you will want to adjust the bridge.

get some .01 gauge strings

You can use any gauge you want that is readily available for regular electric guitars, as long as you either know how to set the guitar up (bridge settings and neck relief) or are willing to pay a shop to do it for you (aka if you're a pansy).

They would be 10s.

It's actually .009", .010" etc.

Yeah. a 10th of an inch is about the thickness of a low E.

I believe this isn't true. Vai used a JEM while playing Bad Horsie, and that was in Drop C. So that would need something higher than 9s or 10s

Most likely, so it'd prove JEMs can take anything.

Well, if you have a really fragile hollowbody, slapping a pair of .13's in standard tuning on it might not be the greatest idea in the world......However, since we're talking about JEMs, I think they can handle any gauge you would figure to slap on them

I put 11s on my PGM that shipped with 09s. A little setup and it plays better than ever before.

The only difference I can imagine with a JEM would be adjusting the trem.
#16
steve only uses 9s and 10s, but other than the usual setup adjustments there`s going to be no problems using whatever guage you want, someone i know has 14s on their jem, i personally stick with 9s.
#17
My jem has 13's on it, with drop B tuning, and so far I had no issues.
