just wondering, do you have to adjust your truss rod if you want to use a different gauge set of strings? atm im using ernie ball regular slinky's (10, 13, 17, 26, 36, 46) but ive been thinking about getting some ernie ball skinny top heavy bottoms (10, 13, 17, 30, 42, 52)

it depends on the neck length and wood type, among other things. That is a pretty small change, so you should be fine. I changed from .9 to .11 and only needed a really minor adjustment.

No. The guage wouldn't effect it enough to change it. The only thing you may have to adjust are the springs if you have a floyd rose... but the truss rod should be fine

When would you need to adjust your truss rod?

when your neck relief is off

When the neck is at a 90 degree angle.

i have to adjust my truss rod on my les paul because the guy i bought it off had it setup for 10s with low action but put on 9-42s for some reason. No amount of adjusting the bridge helped.

Note..floyd roses require adjustment to the allen key holes not the springs necessarily.
