For years and years I played 11s - on my electric.

I didn't even notice the string gauge.  Maybe if I start using 11s I'll sound more like Keef?

I briefly went to 12s on my electric - but stuck with 11s for the first ten years of my electric experience.

If you don't bend much it's not a big deal.   But, in some cases 11s may not be the way to go - I tried learning an Eddie Van Halen Lead once - that's when I realized he's a monster when it comes to bending.  I recall a 2.5 whole step bend at one section.    So, in that scenario - you'd probably break strings with 11s.   I never liked bending much anyway.   

Nuttiness aside - The higher gauge aren't as floppy and sound better to me.   My acoustics are 12s - on the high E. 

Edit: I have 12s on my acoustic - not 11s

I'm on 11-50 on Gibson scale, 10-46 on fender scale.


I certainly don't sound like Keith.....

Some guitars.
Some pedals.
Sometimes, I even play them.
