Topic: Got new strings - Went from 10's to 11's...minor issues
I was told I should move this over here to get some more advice on this...
So I decided to switch over from 10-46 to 11-48 -- Ernie Ball Power Slinky, purple package. Now on my Les Paul, the notes seem to die out on the high end when I bend on the high E. I've heard that that normally happens when the action is too low. So I raised it, it seems to have solved the issue, but now the action is almost uncomfortably high. Do I maybe have to just play it in? Or could it need re-fretted? They do seem a little worn down.
The 11's seem to be alright on my other guitars -- they're actually great.
For perspective, and if anyone sees this as an easy-to-fix issue, I'm just a senior in High School, so I don't know that much about setting up guitars apart from how to set action, change strings, adjust the tension rod and pickups, etc. So, of course, I'm open to learning.
