    Default Changing String Gauges

    I play a Wolfgang with a Floyd. Are there any adjustments I need to make if I change string gauge? Just curious.

    usually when changing a string gauge (and me personaly whenever i change strings!) check the action, intonation and sometimes a minor trussrod adjustment basically a set-up, its also a good excuse to give everything a good clean.

    On any guitar there are always necessary adjustments to be made when changing string gauges. As tommy said, neck rod, intonation (saddles), action (string height), and spring tension will all be affected.
