Strings Size

can i change string size on my ibanez/how do i restring my ibanez?

okay so i have an ibanez with a floating tremolo thing and i need to change the strings. i want to change from 10 strings to size 11 strings but idk if i can with out doing something. is it safe to change sizes without adjustment to anything or do i need to adjust something on the guitar to change string size?

Also... I'm so lost on how to change the strings, like any good advice on how to change the strings?

You might need to increase the amount of counter-spring your tremolo uses, but with such a small change I don't think this will be necessary. If you don't increase the springage you will wind up with a higher action which you will likely want to lower: Going to a higher gauge string will allow a slightly lower action than you are using now. The tension on the neck will increase meaning that you may need to tighten the truss rod: If you don't know how, take it to a pro, then LEARN HOW.

Finally, after you get all that set, your intonation will be off: If you don't know how to adjust this yourself, learn:
(It's actually easy to do on a solid body:
with fresh strings that have been on long enough to have worked out all the creep, tune the guitar to your normal tuning at pitch,
check the harmonic at the 12th fret against the fretted note at the 12th fret,
if the fretted note is higher than the harmonic turn the screw at the bridge to move the bridge saddle for that string away from the neck,
if lower then turn the screw to move the saddle closer to the neck.).
