10-46 strings damaging neck?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

Just recently acquired my first Mustang, CIJ competition reissue. 
I've seen some youtubers commenting that 10-46 are too light for a short scale and can damage the neck/truss rod over time. I never seem to have had any trouble on my jag with the same gauge slinkies but my set up knowledge is fairly limited.

If this is a ridiculous question please abuse appropriately.

If you were hearing this from reliable sources, you wouldn’t need to ask the question, right? 

Fender ships the mustang from the factory with 10’s on it. 

I think we can trust the Fender R&D department over random Internet blowhards.
