Hi guys.

I'm playing 011 flatwound on my jazzguitar. Unfortunately I'm in a situation where it needs new strings and all I have (I'm om vacation) is normal 010's (the neon green ernie ball). Can I put them on without damaging the guitar?

Kind regards :-)

It'll be fine, might need some slight adjustments, though. What guitar is it?

No worries. Lighter strings never "damage" the guitar. If you go too light (008s) there may be some buzzing but 11>10s you probably wont even notice a difference.

That's a mouthful... But more to the point the neck on that is multi-piece with a substantial amount of maple so it should be plenty rigid enough not to notice the change Looks like a tasty guitar too.

Listen to the CajunDaddy! 11's to 10's should require almost nothing.
