    Have a 2006 nos Fender american jazz S 1 switching has maple neck came with strings that are .45 .65 .85 110 should I stick with same string or change to other strings & size.
     
  2. I guess my question for you would be: Do you like them, and do they fit the sound you are wanting? If yes, then by all means replace them with the same set. If not, then try something else.

    Don't be afraid to try out different strings and gauges if you can afford it. Just make sure you know how to adjust the truss rod to adopt to strings with different tension. No-one know what fits you best. Low tension? High tension? Rounds? Flats? Nickel? Stainless steel? Chrome(s)? Coated? Non-Coated? Other? There's a huge variety of strings, and the only way to find out what fits you best is to try out different alternatives.

    You have now heavy gauge strings on (.110). Maybe you could try a thin set next? Perhaps a set of TI flats? Those are low tension flats and will give a significantly different sound than the heavy rounds you have on now.
