Subject: RE: Gtr: Are strings >10 bad for you?
back in the days when i was a poor student and only owned 2 guitars..

i decided to string my acoustic
[ a shaftsbury.. probably out of the Eko factory ]
with 11s or higher [?]..

sounded great..

until a few weeks later i woke up one morning to discover
that suddenly overnight the soundboard had bowed sickeningly upwards
and the bridge had torn out leaving behind a mess
of fractured & splintered wooden laminate.. reason to be aware of the possible ill effects of increased string tension
