    Alright soooooo, lets say you switched to a heavier gauge, now you have to adjust the truss rod or something right. But if you didn't adjust anything (even though the bass is out of wack now) and then you switch back to the original gauge you had before, will you still need to perform a set up or will everything even out again?

    Everything should even out again, though it may take a day to happen fully.

    Setup can shift slightly whenever you change strings, even same brand and gauge. It will also shift with the weather and season. Double check your intonation at least.
