A guitar tech Recently told me not to ever put anything higher then a 9 gauge string on my Guitar that has a floyd rose...now i know people who play like 13's in D standard with a FR...i have like 3 sets of 10's but i dont know if i should put em on..

What do you guys think ? will it hurt it ?

If he set it up for .09' then he was probably just recommending that if you put something heavier on without adjusting anything youd find yourself screwed,,,,

Yeah. Him saying to never put anything bigger than nines is a little extreme. It will throw your intonation off though.

Edit: fixed typo.

Alright..thanks for the input I know what i'm doing enough to set the intunation for 10's and to get the floyd balanced back out

Yeah i knew that i would have to change my intunation and stuff i just thought maybe i was a dumbass and had missed something and wasent supose to put heavy gauges on Floyds

lol Dosent matter what u put on there but the Stock Set ups can handle up to 10. once you get to 11 your gonna have to add another spring and reset most the stuff Mabey not so much of the intonation but the bridge its self.

But if ur going for the high gauge its best you pick a tuning and stay with it.

High Gauge Strings are best to be played in low Tunings 50's-9's or 54's-10 in 1/Step or 1/2step(c#) feel like Standered.

There are strings smaller than 9s, but they aren't particularly common.

look, you insert your penis into her va-gi-na. now the hole is closer down towards her butthole not near the top or straight in the middle as commonly thought.
