Hey guys, I've been playing rounds on all my guitars up until now, but I just picked up a pack of flats for my jazz guitar and I have a question about the tension.

The diameter of the strings I have on now are identical to the flats I'll be putting on, but the tension slightly differs. I'm not very knowledgeable about what is considered a large tension difference and I was wondering if I would have to make any adjustments to my guitar to prevent damaging it.

The tension of the rounds I have on now are:

e - 23.3 lbs
B - 23.3 lbs
G - 28.1 lbs
D - 28.1 lbs
A - 26.3 lbs
E - 22.0 lbs

And the tension of the flats are:

e - 23.3 lbs
B - 23.3 lbs
G - 30.0 lbs
D - 27.9 lbs
A - 28.0 lbs
E - 22.7 lbs

I apologize in advance if this has been asked before (I'm sure it has), but I couldn't find anything when I searched.

it'll just be a case of put them on, leave for a couple of hours for the neck to settle a bit, make any adjustments needed to compensate for neck bow, wait 12 hours or so, repeat.

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think
