So recently I bought a Mustang Bass off a guy, and though I'm loving it, I'm switching to the strings to half-rounds. I use GHS brite flats (.049 - .108) on my Jazz, so I wanted to make a similar switch with the mustang. I already know about the whole medium scale thing, but my question is will using such a heavy gauge affect my neck? This may seem like a dumb question, but I'm still relatively new to bass and I never really thought about this before. The Mustang came from the factory with .040 - .090, which is considerably thinner than the GHS brite flats. Thanks everyone!
