No, but I tend to tune down a third (at least) to avoid strain on the bridge. There are guitars that can cope (my ex-) but not my current one. I have used thicker high strings and thinner low ones in the past, but I don't really see the point now - if I'm solo, it's not a problem; if I'm not solo, it'll be improvised, and I'm fine with transposing on the hop.
Welcome, by the way.
