Which has more tension on the neck???


Recommended Posts

Well....in standard tuning E to E:


From D'Addario site:


12's......174 lbs

13's.......183.5 lbs.


According to the string tension calculator at mcdonaldstrings.com:


171.0799999999999 lbs. for 13's tuned from D# to D#


176.19 lbs. for 13's tuned from E to E




I guess best guess is that they are close???
