ok, i have mixed and match a couple sets of strings and found a great setup. it goes:

e:0.13
B:0.13
G:0.17
D:0.26
A:0.36
E:0.52

(i also tune down to Eb)

my question is: should i adjust the Truss rod to accommodate the higher gauge E strings, or will it be just fine?

i dont see where anything could go wrong. ernie ball makes a set of strings that have the .52 on 'em. it it would damage your guitar i'm sure they wouldn't make 'em...

you dont NEED to make the adjustments i dont think it could make a great diference if you just changed the e string gauge, but iy COULD be helpfull

i upped both E strings. up from the usual 0.10 to a .13 and from the .42 to a .52. so, you guys say that i shouldn't worry about my neck bowing?

why not an .11 Just me but I don't see the need for 2 .13's


i like a bit of fight when i bend a string. i don't usually bend it up more than 3 frets and they stay in tune longer.

besides, Stevie Ray Vaughan used .13s. and if it's good enough for him, it's damn well good enough for me.
