I'm planning on changing my strings on my ibanez rg 170 so i got me some ernie balls extra slinky (8). Problem is i heard that ernie balls arent good to put on floating bridges cause they won't be strong enough to keep the bridge in place. At the moment i also have 9's on it and i've heard that its better to keep the same string gauge because otherwise you have to reset the bridge. Is all of this true ? or should i just put those strings on it ?
my gear:
- Caliber limited edition strat copy
- Martinez acoustic
- Ibanez GRG-170 DX
- Rp 150 by digitech
- 35 watt cool amp
- 25 watt megatone amp
- 2 straps

yes it is true. if you want to change your string guague you have to have your bridge reset.

same, and changing string gauges on a guitar means you have to get it set up on any guitar not just ones with floating bridges since it increases tension on the neck
