    Hi friends,
    I own a Ibanez GRG 270, two of my strings have been broken, I need to replace them. I have purchased a D Addario elec guitar String set. But, the coloured knobs at the distal end dont fit into my bridge. Is it that I have to cut them to fit inside, as when I explored the original string that was it had no such knobs put by the company. I am changing it's company strings for the first time, plz help :help::help:

    dude, i just checked and found out that the ibanez has a ILT1 bridge, not sure how it works but as far as I understand your issue you can set the string by the other end similar to a Floyd Rose system not by the knob end.
    Also, I recommend not to start inserting the new strings from 1-6 as it might develop some issue with the guitar intonation,
    if you are not sure how to do it, take it to a shop or maybe check out some tutorial vids from youtube. It seems the bridge is kinda similar
    to a floyd Rose to can try it out.

    Hope it helps. cheers mate!
