that should work fine. I have an electric guitar that's either 25" or 25.5" scale (I forget which) and I keep it tuned BEADF#B. I was using ernie ball 12-56 set, which was pretty nice, but recently switched to a 7 string set and tossed the high E making it 14-58, thought I'd try thicker strings so it would feel more like my acoustic guitar with the wound G string. 14-58 feels better to me, but 12-56 sounded better tone-wise; I think if I replace the nut it might resolve the issue.
