ok so i broke a string on my ibanez (hr giger) and its my first guitar with a floyd rose bridge on. But i dont know which gauge strings would be best for it, i prefer to use ernie ball strings but i dont know which set to use. so can someone help please?

9's or 10's. depending on how you like your strings.

if you're using standard or drop d.

i would suggest 9's if you want it to be bright and you stay in standard tuning, but if you want darker sound or lowered tunings, then get 10's or 11's

I prefer 10's.
You can get the chunkier string sounds, while still maintaining the bright quality of 9's
I think im moving up to 11's though.

when you change gauge on a floyd rose you have to reset the bridge or something right?

you need to adjust the bridge tension.

are those the screws in the back?

uh...
I dont know what you mean...
But basically, theres 2-5 springs in the back, the more springs, the more tension.
The heavier the strings, the more tension you need.
The thing they're attached to can be adjusted for fine tuning of tension.
