    Anybody strung their SE Hollowbody with 11's? I was curious to see whether the SE Hollowbody Piezo would come with 11's like the Core HB II, which they don't. I'm wondering whether the added tension of 11's would cause a problem on the SE Hollowbody Piezo that I just received.

    You should be fine with 11s. Probably need to widen the nut slots a little, though.

    You will most likely need to post pictures of your New Guitar on this thread for 11's to work.....

    Ha! I’ve been remiss on an NGD post, I readily admit. Amber lampshade knobs are due to arrive tomorrow. I have SE locking tuners ready to install, but I wanted to make a string decision first. I think I’ll go with the extra set of 10s that I got with the tuners and postpone 11s and nut filing until later. Might not get all that done until the weekend. Actually, I probably won’t. I will definitely post pics after that.
