string gauge and stress on the neck

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by gruffpuppy, Nov 17, 2000.


  1. i have a couple of string set sitting around that i wanted to try out on my stingray:
    ken smith slap master ultra lights 30-90
    and also some d'daddrio exl230 55-110

    i prefer the heavy strings and thats what i usually use but i wanted to test out the other strings to see how they sound
    i know the size diference i brutal and i may have to tweak the truss rod a little but i was wondering if anyone could predict any other probems i might run into. i.e. could i damage the neck
    thanks
