    At NAMM, i'm pretty sure i spent more time talking to the guys at the PLEK booth than i did anywhere else.

    What a great way to illustrate string tension!

    I've had people say to me that a guitar has "thousands of pounds" of string tension, and the reality is that it's about 90-120 lbs.
