This might be an extremely stupid question, but today I replaced my strings and have managed to break my high B string (011 gauge). Will it be OK to replace this with a spare 009? I'm planning to leave these strings on for about a month. Thanks!

Yeah it'll sound a little weird coz the rest of the strings are quite heavy while that 9 gauge one is very light. But yeah it won't damage anything.

Hmm ok thanks, I might just do that temporarily.

Your probably better off if you replace them all. It won't damage anything, but, I don't know, that just seems weird to me.

thats a plan...but i would also recommend changing strings about every couple weeks or so....old strings sound very dull

Yeah they do. I'm planning on getting a full Drop C setup on this guitar in a month or so though (£55, can't afford it yet!) - it's in standard at the moment but i'll soon be getting a new guitar and using this one for lower tunings. So yeah, I'll get new ones soon. I've put the string on and its not too bad thanks!
