    Hey guys, I've got an extra set of EB Hybrid Cobalts lying around and was wandering if I could put them on my PRS without the trem needing re-adjustment. The guitar was originally fitted with 10's (in red) and the Cobalts are in blue.

    I wouldn't think that it would change the trem much but you never know! thanks in advance!

    You should be good to go without tinkering. I regularly switch from 10s to 9.5s and vice versa without having to do anything.

    If u change string gauge you will need to do some adjustments to the floating bridge.If u go from thicker to thinner gauge u will notice the tremolo tilts backwards and vice versa.No problem to adjust,just take off the backplate and adjust the tremolo springs.The bridge top plate should be perpendicular and about 1/16 off the body.
