Hi there,
I have a 360FG - love it - but am confused on the string selection. My manual lists the standards as 8s - RIC 95401. But the online manual and what I can see on the web recommends 10s - RIC95403.

Should it be 10s instead? This would seem to make more sense as I find the 8s as an unusual fit. Thanks for any help.

Dermot (Ireland).

Yes. 10's.

Try D'Addario 11's chromes flatwound...sounds fantastic

Thanks for the help. Still don't understand how my manual says 8s but I've changed to 10s and love it.

Maybe your manual is older? I know they update it regularly - the one available for download here will always be the most current.

Glad to hear the 10's went on well and your guitar sounds good. If you stick to the same gauge strings ( 10's are the best for most) you will seldom have to do a truss rod adjustment and if you do it will only be minimal during a seasonal change.

If you ever do a rod adjustment, it is best to use the correct Rickenbacker tool, which is long and straight. Note other types of truss rod tools can damage your guitars truss rods.
