Medium Gauge Strings

I know the Collings recommends only light gauge strings for smaller bodied guitars, but would it be harmful to use medium gauge (13-56) strings on my 01 or C10 when tuned a half step down to Eb standard or a full step down to D standard tuning. Thanks in advance!

C10 with belly bridge you can safely use mediums on a couple of strings (say on the unwound strings). I would not use a full set of mediums.

C10 with a straght bridge probably you should stick to a full set of lights.

You can always give a call to Collings customer support at (512) 288-7776.
