Sounds pretty fucking sweet. Also, I found a KICKASS article for all to read. It shows calculations for the string gauge you would need to get x pounds of tension with whatever note you want. Works very nice, takes into account guitar scale too. I only played with it a bit, but it says I would need a 58 gauge string to get 15 pounds on tension on my 24.75" in B.
