I got 11-50, and what is on my guitar now is a lighter gauge string, I really just wanna know if having the nut slotted matters, I didn't bother on my 1st guitar (I don't really care about it) but the guitar I have right now I love and wanna treat it right. There doesn't seem to be any room left in the nut for anything bigger either.
you should have it set up for those strings. But really if you liked ur old gauge strings why get different ones? unless ur trying to experiment. but if ur gonna stick with the new ones then yeah get it slotted.
