I am looking to buy a used 12-string acoustic guitar.
I know that 12-string guitars have a problem of
of all that string tension eventually causing the bridge
to lift. I was told that I would need to tune-down
the guitar a full step in order to help stop that
from happening, and that standard tuning, EADGBe,
would hurt the guitar eventually.
I also was told to use extra light strings, to help ease
the tension. I’d like to ask if this information is correct.
