Hi,

I have a question. Right now my guitar has 10's. I want to put 11's on.

Right now the guitar nuts "sockets" seem very tightly "filled" with the 10's. My question is if 11's will fit the nuts string sockets. I'm assuming 11's are thicker?

Thanks

I have been debating this on my LP also, what are the differences in your sound, playability, etc. that you have noticed? I have 10's on mine but have thinking about the switch for a while.

Did the same on my Ibanez and only needed a truss rod adjustment.

I have 13s on my LTD and they fit in the nut. Though I may go down to 12s next time I buy new strings since I dont go lower than Drop C anymore.

I went from .10's to .11's to .13's on my paul in the past few months, and I have to say: I had no problems with the nut what-so-ever. I did have to file the nut on my Strat when I put .13's on that. You shouldn't have any problems. You may have to tighten your truss rod a bit after the strings pull on your neck a while.

Xeus: he shouldn't have had to take it in to get it set up, all he had to do was take the back plate off and tighten the trem claw in the back to reset his bridge. Total waste takin' it in just for that. I've found that every guitar should only have to go in for 1 setup in it's life, after that, it's always just little adjustments that almost all players can do themselves to keep the guitar playing well.

well if you are going to put 11's in there and you are tuning you standard you cant use 9's anymore cause it will really mess up the nut. at least that's what happened to my friend's guitar.

I like bending hard on my guitar and one day a string broke.
I use 10's
