    I’d like to put a 52 gauge low E on my 2008 Hot Rod with Sperzel locking tuners. Will it fit?

    Is anyone using 11-52 strings on their 08 Hot Rod? Any issues?

    You may need to enlarge the nut slot....

    I'd just go ahead and try it. No reason why you shouldn't.
    My new Gretsches all came with 10-46 strings and .052" is not very much bigger than .046", .006" is a really tiny amount. If you're lucky you might not even need to file the nut.
