If I immeadientally(sp?) went from a heavy Gauge of strings to extra light strings, would that warp my neck? I know going from light to heavy is hell on the neck, but is it same for heavy to light?

I'm not quite sure considering when you take your strings OFF, theres no tension so yeah.
mmmk.

i cant see why it would, if anything it would releive some of the tension that the heavier gauge put on it.

btw, nice sig

That's why you don't take them off all at once. One at a time. Once or twice it's fine, but taking off all the strings at once for years and years is not a good idea, and just try taking off all the strings at once on a floating bridge. Bad idea.

using really light guage strings is never good....especially with a floating bridge.....when i had work done on my guitar they told me not to get 9's because it'll mess up ur guitar cause its not a lot of tension and it got complicated and stuff but....try not to get lower than 10's....and exactly wat guage are u going from and wat guage do u wanna go to?

its heavy now which is 115 on the E, and i wanted to go down to medium, which is usually 105 on E

Anytime you change string gauges you need to adjust your truss rod. It's going to need a little more tension for the lighter strings, but it won't be that significant. Going from heavys to mediums I wouldn't even worry about it honestly. In the title you made it seem like you were going from .115s to .95s. Since that is not the case I would just not worry about it, unless your intonation gets off.
