I've been searching all over for information on why some guitars feel easier to bend given the same scale length. I'm not talking about the fret height/type and other things that make sense like type of fingerboard/radius. I'm talking about when you try to pull the string across the fingerboard; some guitars just feel more slinky. Specifically, I have Strat scale length guitars and I cannot figure out why some of them really do feel like the strings are more "elastic". Apparently given a neck scale length and tuning, the string has a predetermined tension. This is a given. So at some point, they all have the same tension for a given scale. However, it is obvious that certain guitars feel like they require less effort to bend the string. You can grab the string and feel it. Apparently to not confuse this with tension, it's called elasticity or compliance. In any case, I have read that the nut break angle, saddle break angles, total string length etc.. have an effect on this. But there was a test regarding the total length of string vs... the scale that seemed to indicate that it didn't matter. Here is the link. In any case, what factors can we adjust on a Strat to affect the perceived elasticity of our strings? On a Les Paul, it's the break angle of the stop tailpiece for example. Any hints? Thanks in advance.
