    Yes, lots of people here do, there are threads about this. Do a search.

    From what I know, it's not that big of deal. You'll probably have to adjust your trussrod, since the tension on the neck has been altered, and you might (some people disagree on this) have to do some filing to your nut, since the strings are of a different gauge.
