Does it really matter that much? cuz im pretty sure everyone has a guitar and some basic knowledge about there own guitars if they are on this website..

Wrong forum, but I'll actually be helpful too.
It depends on the guitar and the truss rod. As long as you don't leave the strings on for too long, it will be fine; it's only if you leave them on for very extended periods of time, but as long as you adjust the truss rod to meet the tension, you should be fine. Also, what kind of bridge and what gauge strings are we talkin?

Hmm, well, I use 12-56 in standard and drop D and I've never had a problem. Even had 14's in D standard a few times. No problems. Just adjust your truss rod like has been said and you'll be in business.
