Fender VS S on string tension tuned to pitch? Why?
Question. My Fender is of course the same scale as the S series. Tuned to pitch it seems to me that the S series has more tension, as if the scale were longer? Is it because of a trem and when you bend it takes more bending because the trem rocks forward or something? I don't have a floater on my Strat. It's an old 6 hole Vintage trem that I screwed in all the way to make a stable fixed bridge. It rocks.. Both do, and I needed the S series for a Trem guitar.. Just wondering. It's not like terribly bad or anything, but you can tell there's a difference.. I wonder if you folks have had the same experience with two guitars with same scale, but different trems or setups? Both guitars have the same string guage and string brand, etc,. Both have jumbo frets, etc,. I can't figure it out. hehe..
