String Gauge Change


Recommended Posts

Hey all. I've been playing a lot of acoustic over the last two years, and have gotten myself very used to the wound G string, both in feel and tone. I've looked a little (but not much) and the only sets I can find that come with a wound G are heavy gauge (and the electric sets are the same gauge as the Elixirs I use on my Taylor). I currently run 10's on my Les Paul and would like to go to a heavier gauge.


So the questions I have are: Do you have any recommendations on string brands/sets to use that aren't quite so heavy (maybe 11's with the wound G)?


How then do I best go about changing the set up on my LP Standard to make the new strings fit? Should I get a new nut? Should I adjust the bridge/set up/action/etc?


Thank you all so much!
