Hi all - I play funk rock with some bluesy soloing here and there, and I currently have some 11 gauge strings installed on my Fender Deluxe Strat. However, I'm in D Standard (whole step down) tuning (long story...basically was in a black metal band, believe it or not, and the tuning stuck ever since). I find that my "style" includes a lot of attack and this results in the strings vibrating against my fretboard when I really get into it. Would 12 gauge strings stop this perhaps (including the intonation adjustments and so forth that will go with new strings being installed) ?

Thanks!

You need a setup. New strings or not, this sounds like a neck/bridge adjustment issue.

Yep

Strings as thick as 12 would surely sound pretty cool for funk tho
