i have played .10s on all of my guitars for probably 12 years now.
last year, i ended up scoring a PRS DGT which comes set-up with 11s. the thing is, between the scale, big frets and comfortable neck, i didn't even notice the difference in string gauge at all.
last month, i bought a PRS hollowbody that was strung with .10s from the prior owner, but i remembered that the factory spec called for 11s on this model as well.
so earlier today, i restrung the hollowbody with .11s and it's total bliss. there's a certain amount of tightness that comes from moving up a gauge, but it's not a struggle and the tone is a little more authoritative; punchy and bold, with a nice snap on the high strings (beyond just the fact that they're new strings).
so, now i'm thinking about grabbing another pack of .11s for one of the LPs to see how i like that change. the frets aren't as big on the LPs as they are on either PRS, so it might not be the right fit, but i figure i'll give it a shot.
anyone else moving up (or down) these days on string gauge? if so, why?
