Is there much difference in tension between a .105 and a .110 tuned to D?

I noticed it, but I’m not sure it’s really a massive difference. That said, incremental differences are really noticeable on this sort of instrument to me. The close string spacing makes for a huge difference in feel.

That looks super nice. Those Squier IVs are so awesome playing and sounding. I miss mine.

I don't have to, +/- 24 on a per-string basis.

Thank you, synth pickup GR-55/VI combo. :)
