String Change

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by mark_palmer17, Jan 21, 2003.

  1. i believe i have 105 gauge strings (from wot i've been told) on my Yamaha RBX170 but i want to change them to 90's can i get away with a straight swap or will i need to get my whole setup changed?

  2. You might have to. You may find you action needs adjusting, possibly lowering, and check the neck relief. If it seems stable after a few hours of having the strings changed... leave it.

    Intonation and all that jazz should be checked anyway everytime u change strings so see how that is.
