Hey everyone,
I am going to probably order an Ibanez RG2550e sometime tonight, and since so many of you guys use Ibanez guitars I was wondering what kind of strings you guys use on your Ibanez. I really have no experience beyond Fender strings ( I have a strat) so any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks wink.gif

It really doesnt matter what you use on an Ibanez as to any other electric but here is some good ones to choose from.

Ernie Ball (Super Slinky)=You will either love them or hate them
D'Adarrio (malmsteen model)=these are very light 8-42 so there great for lead but if you tune down NO.

Really need to know what you play most to give you the best recommendation.If you tune down low to C or even lower you want a thicker gauge string as to if you really just play alot of solo's you would want a much lighter string.And if you play it all you want something in the middle tongue.gif

Give us some more info so we can tell you

My Gear
Cort X-2 electric with 24 frets and 2 humbucker's dark Blue
Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

D'Addario 9-42 is a great pack of strings. I use them for years now and never thought of changing strings. I also thing it's optimal gauge for floating bridges.
