    You'd probably have adjust the truss rod some.
    I love Rotosound RS77's & SH77's. Great strings.

    I'd go REALLY easy on any high tension strings with this baby.
    I don't usually put anything heavier than D'addario XL's on it and the neck is fighting me every step of the way with THOSE.

    Good Luck with it...
