Nope. I have em on my guitar right now. I just switched to em like 2 weeks ago and I love the difference. I play mostly in Drop D, but standard they work just fine.

my strat has 10s for standard and my LP has 9s, I think they're just right if you have a longer scale length guitar.

Should be fine. You'll probably want to adjust the truss rod/floating bridge (if you have one) though.

Well, 9's are really for strats as they're really meant to be vibratoed more by the arm than a fixed bridge style guitar.

So usually, its

9's for strats and other fenders with the one way standard fender vibrato system
10's for fixed bridge or floating bridge standard tuning/drop D

and you should go up 1 guage per dropped tuning,

12's for Drop C

SRV played 13s on his strats in standard tuning, 10s are no problem.
