I think with a thinner headstock there will be more break angle over the nut so there should be more downward pressure. Or do I have things backwards? Hmm, now I'm thinking... The tuners are the same size, so the string travel from nut to tuner post is the same angle.Guess I'll see if any spacer is needed anywhere when I have put it together for a testdrive. Right. It depends on whether you thinned the face or the back. If you thinned the back, then the tuner posts will be taller on the face, relative to the fretboard. That’s my theory...though I had to cancel my Holiday Inn Express reservation.
