You guys are blowing me away....13's ? Damn!! And I thought my .11's on my hardtail tore up my fingers! Nothing but respect if this is on a hardtail.

Metalheads are the worst thing that ever happened to metal.

I know what you mean... I tried Acoustic 12's in Standard... can you say OW??! I had at least 1 CM of action and a neck that literally started to twist sideways...

.012" gauge strings are the NORM for acoustic guitars. .009" and .010" are considered normal for electrics. These are average gauges that the majority of guitars come equipped with. You can go up/down from there based on personal preference/playing style. If you go too far, set-up's are in order. Say your guitar came with .009's on it, and you want to try out a set of .011's, you might need to re-intonate it and also possibly widen the nuts slots to fit the heavier gauge strings. The neck relief may also need to be tweaked.
If you have a standard size dreadnaught, and it has .012's on it, that's considered normal.

That makes absolutely no sense. Lower gauges have LESS tension.

He probably had the strings so tight he had it tuned up an octive. I had my lutherier change my strings and do a "tune up" on my Peavey HP Signature. He had one string so tight that it was reading on my Korg as almost tuned but never could get it right until I realized it was super-duper tight. I came down....way down and finally saw the problem and solved it. I'm lucky I didn't snap that string.

Just a guess.
