Try to get a hybrid set which will suit your needs. Ernie ball makes some of those sets. They have ones which have thicker lower strings for riffing and thinner higher ones for soloing.

Hmmm, I've been playing on floyded biggrin.gif guitars a long time, but i never encountered this kind of problem. Is the floyd calibrated so that it stays parallel to the guitar body? Or is it too raised or too lowered? I'm trying to find a clue to what the problem maybe smile.gif wink.gif

well its parallel the only dif' btwn my jackson and my SG might be the action, the strings on my sg are a little closer to the guitar's arm and my jackson is a bit higher comparing to my SG.


the other problem might be that my jackson doesnt have a problem at all and i just to use to my SG that playing the jackson feels kind outplace o.o but i doub it, i hope

Mate, another question - were your strings causing the same problem before? Or you just encountered it with this set?

the later strings, were really crappy ones feel "plastic" so i changed to ernie ball 0'9 and got some fret buzz on the lower strings so i ask a friend who have exp with floyd rose guitar to adjust the bridge and the problem was solve, but after i play it the lower strings they kind felt discomfortable and i didn't like the sound they were producing

I just dropped a set of 11s on my Floyd guitar, it helped gain a bit of tightness compared to my 9s but still doesn't give that "fuller" sound from my Les Paul.

I think that the floyd wasn't calibrated in a good way. But let me know on the results of the string changing wink.gif
