scale length help

My current guitar has a floyd rose and a 25.5 inch scale length. I use .12-.52 strings and tune to B. The string tension is perfect to my hands and I like the way it plays. My next guitar is going to be 24.75 inch scale and equipped with a fixed bridge...should I buy some bigger strings for this guitar? I've never played a Gibson scale instrument, so I don't really know how they are affected as far as string tension goes.

You should definately buy some thicker strings. I`d recommend 56-12 or 13.
You must try.
I mean Zakk Wylde tunes to C and has 60-15 or something like that on his LP

there will be little difference. a set of .13's will keep it nice

and zakk wylde uses 60-10. Its really stupid.

I was very bemused as a youngster watching the Golden Girls when Blanche said she was going to "spank her fanny" I had visions of a geriatric vertical bacon sandwich red and bruised from being disciplined!!!

I use .058 strings for my low B. It's all relative. See what feels good.

If you don't like it, buy some thicker/thinner strings. It's not the end of the world!
