    i always play 0.40-0.95 rounds, now i have GHS`s in my lakland 4-94.

    but just for the experience (and maybe more) i was going to try some 0.50 - 105.

    does the different tension change my truss rod curve by itself? so ill have to acomodate it after changing strings?

    if yes; how much time do i have to wait till i do this?

    Don't forget to adjust the intonation after changing string gauge.

    I use Daddario 0.45 - 0.100.
