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 ?
yes it is true. if you want to change your string guague you have to have your bridge reset.
ive heard that alot....thats why i like to steer away from floating bridges
i use ernie balls on a floating bridge.....works alright for me
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
i got a floating bridge and extra slinkys work ok on it
and yeah you'd hafta get ur bridge reset
ok thanks for the advice
