String guage change

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I've just bought a Prs 594 it came with 10 guage strings. It says on the back of the head it's set up for 10 guage strings. My question is, would I be able to put 9 guage on or would the truss rod need adjusting?

Thanks. Dennis.

Probably need loosening if anything

Yes, a little loosening of the truss rod (probably half a turn) should be all you need. Does it have a trem? If so, you might need to loosen the springs a little as well.

I'd try it first and see. I went from 10s to 9s but also changed makes and the tension must have stayed about the same as there was no need to alter the neck relief.
