String Stretching…do you?

It was just a question and a comment...

Lot's of different views!

The "core" alloy varies between manufacturers, each will have a different "set". That is why I asked about which brands others play.

If you were needing to "stretch" the brand you prefer to reach someplace near stable quicker, I would vote for tuning up a bit sharp so that the string stays in-line and the pull is along the axis, then back off to correct pitch.

That's exactly what I do, tune up like a half step, play heavily with the bigsby for like 10 mins, then tune normal. With GHS nickel rockers, that's pretty much all it takes and theyre set
