Now this isn't a drastic change like 9s to 15s or anything but anyway...
I had my guitar adjusted to Dean Markley mediums (11-13-18-30-42-52) and I another guitar with DRs (gauge is irrevelent here). I realized the DRs felt better, lasted longer, etc. But the closest gauge DR has is 11-14-18-28-38-50. Will putting these on require any sort of adjustement to the truss rod?
If so, can I do it myself, I don't want to mess anything up

Well, thanks in advance

shouldnt, both are listed as that companys 11's. swap them one string at a time.

it will need an adjustment if its on the verge of needing one anyway.

if the guitar is set up pretty well right now with no buzz, then ull probably be fine.
even if u needed any adjusting after, just repost we'll talk u thru it.

you suck, elixirs are the way to go mate. btw your not going to need any truss rod adjustments just be careful of the a string since it may be lower than with your dean markley strings

^psssht, elixers cost more than a small fortune and deaden the tone on electrics IMO.

Thirty freaking dollars for a packet of strings?

**** that.

Some of us have to pay bills.

They don't sell Elixirs anywhere near me, and they DO cost quite a bit...well for me anyway. My guitar is getting a little buzz from the 6th string on the 1st fret, but that's normal right? Right
Ah well, thanks for the help

look at my location mate. and yes theyre quiet pricey but think about it daddario would last you 2 weeks tops before going sour. elixirs should last 6 months if you take good care.

you might need an adjustment.
u can start by raising the bridge a little. but often, 1st fret buzz means a slight back bow in the neck.

do u want to raise the action at the bridge and see?
is the buzz going thru to the amp?

its just a case of fret buzz from the way the ts is describing it

well its all fret buzz when it buzzes a fret.
but what's causing it, is yet to be seen.

nope. done it on my schools electric which gets used everyday and then done the swap over to elixirs
#14
well maybe everyone else who uses it has mega dirty/sweaty hands lol, or the fretboard is manky and the dirt is rubbing off onto the strings
