I bought my guitar with 10s on it and soon switched to 11's without making any adjustments. I want to put 12's on it now, so will I need to make adjustments? I'd ask a guitar store guy, but the store's in Langley and I am not. I have to go there to get the strings anyway, but I'd like at least a second opinion. My guitar is an archtop with an adjustable bridge by the way.

I had 12s on my guitar for a while and it bent the neck out of shape quickly in normal tuning. Unless you're playing a hollowbody guitar, you usually don't put such thick guages on your guitar. They have better tone(excellent for jazz), but on an solid body, you're going to need adjustment. If you have a thin necked guitar, it might not be able to handle it, though.

As I said, it's an archtop.
