I need some advice from some more skilled guitarists related to my new guitar.
I´m playing guitar for many years now, but always used very cheap guitars (Squier Strat and Harley Benton LP). Now I´ve bought a (for my circumstances) more expensive guitar,
it`s a FGN JIL-ASH-M and I am more than overwhelmed from this guitar.
This simply starts by the tuning experience, where the Tuner bubble got a very short spike upturned and then swings in a position and stays.
My cheapies got permanent seesaw changes of the tuner bubble, and I think it is the overall setup of the strings and specially the octave purity (or am I wrong?).
That leads me to my question, and the only downside of my new guitar: it came with a 010 - 046 string setup, that has a lot more tension on this guitar as on my LP and stratocaster (which is related to the shorter scale (LP) and the vibrato (strat), so I want to change to a 009 string set, but I fear to loose that perfect guitar setup (no money left for a Luthier).
Usually I would just try it, but I´ve read a change of the string strength could damage the saddle notches, what makes sense for me when changing to a bigger string gauge, but otherwise?
And another string gauge could cause a new setup of octave purity, or not?
I hope you understand my little skilled english and also my shakiness...
