I was thinking of getting some cheap superstrat for occasional drop tune stuff in addition to my main E standard guitar.

I plan on doing keeping it in C standard, but I prefer not to use anything less than .13 gauge

I think you'd have to get the bridge modded and have intonation (I think that's what it's called) done for strings that thick.

Not sure though.

I definitely plan on taking it to the shop to get it setup with the heavy gauge I just didn't know if all bridge saddles could take strings that thick.

get it set up with a lot of springs, bud. a LOT of springs.

I put heavy strings on mine and only tightened the springs as the guitar shop said. After putting a new set of heavies on, the wood snapped between the pickup and bridge on my strat (squire). Now I have to wait 2 weeks for them to fix it.

DONT EVER GO 2 WEEKS WITHOUT UR GUITAR. IT WILL TURN U CRAZY!!!!

I know!

You only have to put "+1"

But, I would take it to a shop if your'e gonna do that. And I doubt many electric take them easily without a good setup.

it's weird, people always say your neck would bow if you went from 9's to 13's or something, and you tuned the 13s to standard as well, yet mine never did.. (I've built guitars, I know what neck bowing is) But I wouldn't recommend no adjustment, haha. I just found it weird :P.
