Thread Name: How Does A Guitar Survive Heavy Strings?
Subject: RE: How Does A Guitar Survive Heavy Strings?
My first ever guitar was a Shaftesbury acoustic circa 1974 [a catalogue guitar most likely manufactured by Eko]

After about 7 or 8 years I decided to put heavy strings on it.
Not long afterwards, I woke up one morning to find that with out any warning symptoms
the bridge had lifted and torn the laminated soundboard to splinters...
