I put a set of D'Addario 11's on my LP and they barely managed to fit into the bridge. I'm about to order 12's for B-tuning, but I wonder if they'll fit? Has anyone done it before without filing down the bridge?

If 11's barely fit, what makes you think BIGGER strings will fit without modification?

Thought maybe I could be wrong about 12's being too big. I mean, .012 isn't that much bigger than .011.

You might need to get a whole new bridge and have it set up for that tuning man.
Peace be thy journey
I'm just gonna order the 12's and see what happens. I also ordered a slightly lighter gauge to experiment. Maybe I'll use half of the 12's set, half of the 11's set if I have problems.
