I want to play some fingerpicked songs that don't sound right with 12 strings, don't have a 6 string acoustic, need to change strings after 5 months of not, etc.


will it be bad for the neck?
Tension will be off, don't know if it will ruin it. If you have proper action adjustment and intonation, it shouldn't be a problem.
Don't quote me on this.

id keep an eye on the neck if you do. just adjust the truss rod if it bows at all.

String spacing may be a little weird, but otherwise fine, no structural problems, if the neck does back bow then just tighten up the truss rod a lil bit.

It should be fine.

I do believe Dave Mustaine used a 10string BC Rich strung only with 6 strings back in the day. Can anyone clarify?

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.
it doesnt, or shouldnt. I did this w/ my dad's 12 string, been about a year since and its fine

It would NEVER bow with less tension 0.o Just be sure to put each string where it belongs, failure rate is 0.0008% (This is just if your mental retarded which i doubt).
