I recently purchased a new 24.75 inch scale guitar. This is my second guitar, and my first short scaled guitar. I am used to playing 11-54's in drop C and D standard (25.5 inch scale), before I go buy new strings for it, to keep the tension I am used to, should I go up to 12-56's, or even 13's? I'm not sure how much the scale length impacts the tension on the strings.

24.75 inch necks are just a little more slinky than higher scale lengths, so I wouldn't go up any more than 1 guage, if at all.

Nope, with smaller distance, there is more tension on the string. You should go to 10's if you want to keep the tension, theoreticly speaking.

Wut? Then why do guitar luthiers even bother with 27" scale 7-string guitars?

I'm sorry, that makes no sense, a shorter string reaches the same pitch at a lower tension than a longer string because the vibrations along the string have shorter wavelengths.
