i have an epiphone les paul 100 and a jackson js30.
the jackson has great string tension when i tune up
but on my les paul the strings tune way too tight.
is there any way to change this
guitarist: hey bassist i snapped another g string

drummer: ha ha you wear g strings!

Only way to lower the tension is lighter strings or lower tuning. But yea the shorter scale LP should feel looser. But it also depends on the action of each guitar. If the LP has the action jacked up and the jackson doesnt then the LP will feel tighter.

I'm thinking you have heavier guage strings on the LP than the jackson. Probably .11's or something, while the Jackson has .9's (or something with the same differance, like .12's and .10's) If you put the same guage strings on the LP as the jackson, you should be able to get less string tension on the LP. And then from their, you can go up a step and should be able to get similar tension.
