So a lot of you guys always talk about how awesome 11's were for your hollow bodies. I always kind of assumed that they would be a little to fat for me, and that they would take away from the feel of the action on my 5120. I finally bought a set ( Ernie Balls) threw them on, and wow!!! The feel and tone are amazing!! Did not take away from the action at all. I dont know if its the higher tension or what, but the actions even better than with 10's. They allow me to adjust my thumb wheels on the bridge and dial in the perfect feel with no buzz. I wonder what 12's are like?;) I'm now a believer!!!
