    Viola Fine Tuners on a Guitar?

    hmmm...using the charts at Daddario: http://www.daddario.com/DAstringtensionguide.Page?sid=10920286-7cd3-4f2c-b7bd-54d1cffa53ea and the charts at violinstringreview [http://www.violinstringreview.com/uploads/1/5/0/1/15014224/tension_a_201409.png I see only 2psi difference. Is there another aspect I am missing? Am I not reading the information correctly? TIA

    Viola Fine Tuners on a Guitar?

    Yes Greg, yes Norris, and YES Andy - the reason this comes up for me is that my go to is to bend the living crap out of g and b. I have a floyd rose and love being able to make that micro adjustment with my right hand. Not a big fan of the floyd, tho. Don't use the guitar that much. I would find it interesting to put fine tuners on a Les Paul or similar. And tru on you Norris, it would look boss as heck.

    Viola Fine Tuners on a Guitar?

    someone at the Gibson corporation thinks there is a market for fine tuning tailpiece action, to the tune of $140 USD.
  7. Long time lurker, first time poster, forgive me if this is a silly question: Has anyone considered using viola fine tuners on a guitar bridge? I somewhat accidentally ran across these on a related web search, and am wondering why not install them on a guitar? I've never seen such a thing, but can't think of why it could not be possible... Thanks for your thoughts.
