Has anyone strung their PRS SE with a set of 12's?

Hi,

I'm thinking about using 12's (Ernie Ball Not Even Slinky 12-56) on my PRS Tremonti Custom SE. I'd like to know if anyone has tried to do this, if so, what kind of changes have you had to make to accommodate such a heavy gauge, what changes do you recommend?

I keep all my guitars strung with 11s. The biggest thing for the SE will be the nut. SEs are strung with 9s from the factory (with a few exceptions) so you'll most likely need the nut to be filed for the heavier gauge. You may also need to do a truss rod adjustment to compensate for the higher gauge. If it were me, I would just take it to a guitar tech to get a full setup done for the new string gauge.
