quick question. new guitar, licensed floyd. it has thick strings on it and its setup for standard, i bought 9's cause i want 9's. read in the setup guide that i should restring 1 by 1 if the same guage. its definatley not the same guage so can i still restring this way or whaa?

I wouldn't because you'll probably have to change the spring tension before putting on the nines. How big do the current strings look?

Yes, re-stringing it that way is fine. But once you do re-string it you will have to adjust the spring tension while tuning it.

Or if you want to try you can find a small, solid object and put it under the floyd bridge to "block" it. Last time i re-strung one of my guitars with a similar floyd style bridge I temporarily blocked it with a simple eraser out of my old pencil case from school.

they FEEL like 10's but theyre as tight as 11's. so pretty safe bet they are 10's
