Anyone using heavy strings on an Epiphone Casino?


I'm using heavy gauge GHS Big Core Nickel Rockers (.0115, .015, .019, .028, .038, .056) on my Strat and absolutely love them. Between the pure nickel, the big core, and the heavy gauge, the tone and stability is fantastic!! (And, yes, I bend the heck out of them and they come right back in tune!)
I'm looking at possibly getting an Epiphone Casino, but wondering if it could withstand the tension of these strings.
Anyone tried heavy strings on a new Epiphone Casino?

You should have no trouble other than you'll likely need to tighten the truss.
