string tension or fretting issues

Posted on April 12, 2018 at 4:11am 5 Comments

I just recently finished a 3 string and it seems like the strings are a little hard to fret. I have it set up on a 25 inch scale, if I move the bridge toward the neck will it make the strings easier to fret without sacrificing tone quality? It plays great with a slide. I am also wondering if I might have the frets set too low. I am using an 8/32 bolt for the bridge and a bit smaller bolt for the nut.

In open G tuning, is there a trick to make tuning the low G string  easier. I am using a A string for it

Hi Danny! Welcome to HMC!   There are some great tidbits here.  Methods, music, answers to questions.  Ted has a nice board here that has some very interesting inside information on how stuff works... and creativity to go with it.  (The designs on his pickups are pretty awesome.)
