    Hey guys

    Nearly time to restring my relatively new Ibanez ARZ307 (First time since owning it) and I was wondering what would be a suitable string gauge/brand. I usually just keep it in B standard, sometimes going to drop A.

    The reason I am asking is because I have heard that the hardware of the guitar such as the tuners are kind of 'cheap', and I dont wanna push it to its limits and mess something up haha

    Oh yeah, and everything is still stock on my guitar, including pick ups, Which I may change in the future. But for now I dont mind them. Just playing them though Pod Farm at the moment and they do the job.

    Thanks for your suggestions :hbang:

    I had one and it was super comfortable with a 11-49 set plus a 68 for the B/A

    I use 10-62 for B standard and even down at A it handles fine

    I use 10-46+60 on mine, B standard. Drop A would use a fatter 7th.

    I'm currently modding mine (only stock parts left are body/neck)

    Going to use a .011 .015 .018 .26 .36 .50 .62 gauge for Standard A tuning to make up for the shorter scale.
