    When I got ahold if my lightly used ergo - I'm sure that it had it's stock Ibenez(?) strings - they sounded great - then I needed new strings...I tried E.B.s and the larger gauges wouldn't fit the bridge...I've ended up using DRs and they are nice - except the G it sounds tinny and just bad - why? is it the string do I need a heavier gauge is it the nut (damaged from trying to wedge the wrong gauge in previously?) do I need to find the same strings it used to have ? help....

    I have an Ibanez...factory strings were OK, but it came time to change. In error I put on Blue Steel Nickel lights (I thought I had a package of steel med-lts) Sounds bad. Lots of fret-buzz, despite re-set-up at the store (I somehow think they could have done a better job, but still think the strings are a problem)
