Hi all. I'm thinking about picking up an Ibanez EX Series Bass as a backup for my old B. C. Rich Bich bass. I know the Ibanez has a very thin neck and from what I've read everyone says to use light gauge strings on it. I tend to prefer ProSteel mediums though. The band I'm in plays tuned a 1/2-step down. Do you think even with the lower tuning medium gauge would be too much? Thanks in advance!
