My electric guitar strings from the factory were:
D'Addario 10, 13, 17, 26, 36, 46.
I'd like to put in
Earnie Ball Slinky Cobalt 8, 11, 14, 22, 30, 38.
Is it safe to use the smaller gauge strings?
The reason I ask is that I've heard having not enough (or too much) string tension can warp the neck which will cause fretted notes to never align properly in their tuning. Rockin Cowboy's Answer indicated a truss rod adjustment may be necessary though the OP had inquired about an acoustic guitar. Thank you.
