    I have a stingray 4 string and want to change the g string to a thicker gauge to get more volume from it.

    Should I change the entire set of strings to a heavier gauge or is it ok to leave the rest and just change the g?

    I am just concerned about imblalnce of tension etc?

    Change whatever string you want to whatever gauge you want... Just keep in mind, if change too much, it may warrant a neck adjustment.

    I was never fond of anything coming from the G string. That's one of the reasons I went to BEAD (using the 4 thickest strings of a 5-string set).
