John Abbett Posted April 21, 2008 Report Share Posted April 21, 2008 Hi all. I'm in the process of building a short scale guitar for my duaghter. It's 19.10 inches. I was thinking about strings this weekend and was wondering if because of the short scale, I need to change the string size for each note? For example, E on a normal scale has a certain tension, but when I install E on a short scale, I'm thinking the string will have a different tension. To compensate for that, can I use larger or smaller strings to get the E and have a better feel? The guitar is not near being finished yet. So this is just thinking at the moment. If I'm blowing smoke I'm sure someone will set me straight.. What'cha think? -John Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
