I have a Schecter C-1 Elite and I got some .11g strings I am going to put on it for drop C tuning. The strings I have on it now are .10g. Will I just have to adjust the intonation when I put them on, or will I also have to mess with the truss rod also? Also it has a TOM bridge.
I have the same guitar and did the exact same thing previously. Yes, you will need to adjust the intonation when you drop it down to C, with the heavier gauge. Maybe a minor truss rod adjustment will be needed, but it won't be anything major. When I went from 10's to 11's for dropped C, it only had to be tweaked slightly. Intonation wasn't far off, either.
