Exclamation urgent guitar question

im leaving like in a little while to my local guitar shop, unfortunately I dont have another opportunity to buy new strings for some time, cuz im really busy with school atm, and my current strings are very old. I was thinking to change string gauge, cuz I feel like there is some tension missing, but I was wondering, does the same set of strings feel diferent in tension, in different scale guitars(I mean, for example, 24.75" vs. 25.5")?Is there any change? Cuz I tried Daddario XL110 (10-46) on a LP guitar (24.75" scale) and they felt a little too tense, so is there a difference if I put those strings in my 25.5" scale guitar?

Re: urgent guitar question

Those strings will be much stiffer (harder to bend) on a 25.5" scale.
