Hi Guys,

Just bought my new Ibanez...but not sure what gauge strings are on it....are they usually 9's when shipped from the factory?

I happen to be an idiot and bought 11's. It's not totally my fault because I got my guitar off eBay and didn't get an owner's manual with it, but yeah. They use 9's. I readjusted the spring tension screws from the customary 1.4 centimeters to compensate after rearranging the springs from | | | to \ | / to compensate as a 3 point fulcrum. Too bad I didn't get one of the new S series with the spring tension adjustment knob handy in the back and the Zero Point system. (Though part of me thinks that the tension knob might be too handy and possibly easily knocked out of place during an energetic live show. Then again, S users might not be capable of energetic shows. ;) )

Anyways, always check the factory specs, and when in doubt bust out your Phillips head screw-driver and hit the tension screws. Sometimes fixed-bridge can be so much simpler.
