sorry for the noobish question, but if I were to get .10's for my guitar (i'm using .9's) would i still be able to tune to standard with out any ill effects?

Thanks

sure. you can put any gauge of guitar string on any guitar and tune to standard.

heck, jazzers use 12's or 13's and most are in standard tuning.

just be wary if you have a tremolo (not a fixed bridge) - you might need to adjust. and more than likely you'll need to reintonate for the thicker gauges.
gear?

Worst case scenario is that the neck might exhibit a bit more relief and your intonation won't be perfect. Any good tech can handle these issues in a few minutes.
