I am curious. I like guitars with easy string tension. I dont like the feeling that the guitar is fighting back or stiff when I bend notes. Some do and also like heavy strings but not me. My problem is I find maybe 1 out of 20 guitars that I play that have the string tension that I like. I asked Joe Glaser in nashville about this and he felt it is more of a luck of the draw type thing. I know that Les Pauls with a shorter scale can produce this sometimes but what about others. I am looking for another guitar and this issue has made me more gun shy about buying before playing. What do TGP players think?
