Haha--thanks, man! It was a little unnerving when I tuned it up the first time! Originally, I was thinking that I'd leave the whole instrument dropped down a step or more, but, I have to say: I felt really comfortable with having worked through a bunch of test simulations, so we just decided to go for it and tuned it up to standard. No guts no glory!  :P

When we adjusted the truss and it turned just as easily as it ever has, then I knew we were safe. If there was any sort of friction going on, I would have been a bit more reserved about what we could do going forward, but it's solid; the tuning is stable, and I'm really happy with it!

No guts no glory indeed! 

I said it before and I’ll say it again-

Super stoked to see this and sounding so great too. Awesome job all the way around, and especially love the write up. Frosting on the cake!
