    hi i just have my total recovery of aninjury on my thumb finguer so i couldt do anything,

    so i bougth a new thumb bolt on with the wide neck (6 strings) and i never tuned the bass because i couldnt play

    butr now that i can i notice that :

    well, if you want lighter string tension, go with a smaller gauge string. other than that, you're going to have to experiment for yourself.
