I have a Gibson SG Faded Classic and when I bought it the factory strings were 10-46 I just put some 10-52's on it and in standard tuning it feels pretty heavy and I like it but Im worried it may warp my neck or even break the thing. I have it currently in drop D down a step (DGCFAD) and Im just wondering if I should get the truss rod fixed.

Jeez... if your house was on fire, what would you do? Phone the fire department, or go on UG and ask us what to do?

you should be fine. SRV did that for years, and his guitar came out fine.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

That's not too large a change, but since it IS wood - it's fairly delicate. I would get the truss rod checked just to make sure - when it doubt get it checked ^_^.
