    not normal. :eek:

    M600s on concert scale (tuned to gCEA I presume) should still not be close to "high tension".

    If it's a "string through" bridge, you have the correct procedure. Sometimes folks use beads on the inside but I'm guessing you would have remembered that when taking the stings off.

    what is the scale length?

    Any idea what shipping to U.S. would be or is that even an option - asking for a friend. :nana:

    yes, i see it now. Great choices - except maybe high G. :p

    I'll be curious to hear what you think about the 10" radius. Mine are both 16"

    yeah, i'm guessing fret 16 is high. Do you get a big jump in pitch from fret 11 to 12?

    if you have a good straight edge, like a ruler, you can set it on the frets. If there's a high one, it should...

    That only works in the Marketplace. A moderator would have to close.

    If it arrived as advertised and you just didn't like it, then that would be customary. In this case, I dont think that applies.

    I will just add that shipping damage can happen, although it is...

    Hmm, as I understand it, you got a fancy laminate instrument for under $200 that functions properly (for the moment at least) but does have a minor (?) manufacturing defect that the seller was...

    As with most string questions, most of the answers are "it depends". Gauge makes a difference in playing but is largely personal preference unless the size is too large (e.g. to fit in a nut slot or...

    I agree with all that for linear tuning. My baritone is in Ab with baritone Living Water strings and I once had one in A with tenor Living Water strings.

    If you want reentrant, I would strongly prefer high d since I can easily get high g in the shorter scales. I have a super tenor a step lower at cFAD with Southcoast strings but when I want to change,...

    I don't think that's possible acoustically. Fundamentally, the sound is starting as a plucked string so the sharp attack is just part of the physics with that. If the background is recorded instead...

    I'm going to assume you want suggestions on the lower end of the scale. You won't find one as cheap as the GL1 but I'm going to suggest the Cordoba Mini (the original not the "II") and Islander GL6....
