Okey so how do I calculate the gauge of my strings? i've checked the manufacturers website and the place where i bought it but it doesn't say, all I got to know is that I have elexir strings. so is their some sort of formula to do this? or do anyone know what factory strings their are on a Ibanez SRX595?
Thanks!

any guitar shop owner should be able to tell you by looking at them. why do you need to know are you buying new ones. If so then take the guitar in with you and he'll match them

String guages are in inches. Change the settings then do it again.

It's very damn hard to distinguish between 0.005 of an inch.

I'm assuming that was the B string? In that case I'm pretty sure that means that the B string has a gauge of .130. You figure out where the number comes from. That probably means you have a standard .130-45 gauge set, but if you're really that curious you could repeat the process for every string.

45-105 is default for a 4 string bass.
5 string depends if you got a high B string or a low D string.

These strings should prety much always fit if you get heavier gauge you might have to make an adjustment to the Nut to make them fit.
