Lots of fun though, incredibly awesome to play... especially through the 6505 they had in the store... i just played old arch enemy until my fingers hurt... it was sweet.

The 2 inches of increase (give or take) don't tighten the strings that much, especially for the low tuning it uses... that, and regular strings would be impossible to intonate on a larger scale... the tune-o-matic would be 2 inches away from where it woudl need to be! ... So, you get strings with a mass appropriate to the needed intonation scale.

I was very bemused as a youngster watching the Golden Girls when Blanche said she was going to "spank her fanny" I had visions of a geriatric vertical bacon sandwich red and bruised from being disciplined!!!
