    Default Wolfgang special and XL strings

    Was wondering if anyone has been using XL strings as I recall reading somewhere the min was lights otherwise the it would make warranty invalid. Was reading about this on jfrocks site, so thought to ask before switching.

    XL as in 9s? Or are we talking Billy Gibbon's 7s and 8s?

    Wolfgangs (along with about 95% of all guitars) come from the factory with 9s and some people put 10s on them without modification. Sometimes the nut needs some massaging to go heavier.

    Isn't that the factory string gauge except maybe a 42 on the low E? Why would that be a problem?

    A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.

    Manual says it comes with .009 .011 .016. .026 .036 .046 from factory. I am not sure why it would make a difference, other than adjustment. Likely I misread as it seems from the posts here supports the manual, that it wouldn't be an issue. The manual only refers only to problems arising from the action too low as something not covered.
