Guitar string question


Recommended Posts

  • Members

I've been playing electric guitar for over 4 years now, and during that time have only used guitars with gauge .9 strings. I recently got a guitar (PRS SE Custom) that has .10s and I just tried to restring it. I have now gone through 3 packs of strings because I can't get the high e string any higher than a C# without it snapping. I've never had a problem like this before with my other guitars, am I missing something?

Also, would I need to have my guitar properly set up if I wanted to use .9s on it, and what would that involve doing?



tl;dr - Why do my .10 gauge strings keep snapping before reaching pitch?

Do I need to have my guitar set up again to change to .9s, and what does that involve?
