From the factory it should be a 09-42 set of factory brand strings.

Hope this helps!

Also, this catalog page should give some general specs on the 2016 GAX30 you have:

The archived catalogue was more than helpfull!!Thank you Bill!As for the strings they are 09 for sure.I broke the A string and changed them to 10 s according to the ibanez website.They felt badly different.With 09 s she plays just lije when i got her.I never was a fan of ibanez guitars (maybe the superstrat thing...) but now with the gax i actually respecf the brand a lot...The feel is great and with zome amp tweaking you get some really personall tones.And they cut through rehearsal just fine.There is no cheap guitar.Its what suits you.(well ok the Coy Bowles is "expensive"but kicks serious ass)I would prefer the cbm100 over gibson anytime.

I find a micrometer useful in such situations. You can measure the gauges of the other strings, and get the idea of what gauge the broken string was.
