Will I need to adjust my quantum if I install higher tension strings?

  1. subject says it all...

    If I put DR Low-rider steels on my quantum 5, will I need to adjust the neck at all or will that graphite not budge a centimeter even after a string change?


    Thanks

    Aahhhh........funny you should ask ( well, not really) One of the things I like most about my Q5 is that I can put any set of strings on it without having to adjust sh*t. The neck will not move, I am currently going thru every set that DR makes to see which one I like best and have found that I do not have to make adjustments to the neck.

    I forgot to mention, I always change one string at a time to avoid movement of the neck on all my basses, especially wood necks
