I am going to restring my guitar that has had 11s on for the past 9 months with a .10 set. Will this affect the guitar at all?

The action will go down a bit because you are putting on lighter strings. That is all.
Equipment:
- Art & Lutherie Cedar CW (SOLD! )
- Martin D-16RGT w/ LR Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Pickup
- Seagull 25th Anniversary Flame Maple w/ LR Baggs Micro EQ

It may need a slight truss rod adjustment... most likely not.

After I play through this set, would it be wise to change from 10s to 12s (I want to try different string gauges to see which I prefer) or will this have negative effects on the guitar? If so would it be clever to go from 10s to 11s to 12s?

The short answer is no. It will not. Your guitar is built for it.

Ok cheers, its just that I read somewhere that if you change string gauges the guitar may need to be set up for the new gauge, I assume this is only the case when you do a large change (ie Extra Lights to Thick strings)?
