Quick question - is it likely that I'll need to adjust the truss rod if I change from 10-46 to 10-52 gauge?

Thanks.

I doubt it. I didn't when i changed from 10-46 to 10-52 gauge strings and my guitar plays fine.
My equipment:
Jackson JS30RR FR (w/ SD AHB-1 in bridge)
Peavey Ultra 112
Digitech RP350
Dunlop KH95 Crybaby
Ibanez XPT700
ISP Decimator

just depends on how low your action is now. i went from 10s to 11s and didn't need to change anything.

Just done it - don't need to change anything I don't think, tiny bit of fret buzz but that's more likely technique since its only on barre chords.

I do need to reintonate though - the 12th fret low E sounds about 1/4 step down.

I just tried this exact thing, and it did require a slight turn.

Keep in mind too your nut may not be cut large enough for a string that large.

The seem to seat well enough in the nut and it hasn't cracked so I guess all is ok. I need to go and pick up spare bits from the shop anyway so might take it along and have them give it the once over anyway.
