i find it soo easy to bend strings on my axl(think of a strat) but then i go on my gretsch and its so much harder to bend strings.. how can i make it easier to bend the strings on the gretsch? if i put new strings on it, will theese be more flexible? it still has the strings from when i bought it, a month ago..
cheers.

if u use lighter strings, also it may be the action.

yeah, use lighter strings

or if that doesn't work you could try tuning a half step down

guitar.
amp.
acoustic.

i'm not sure what strings the guitar came with, but i have a pack of .09s that i could replace it with, i'm just wondering if their so hard because of the strings or just because of the guitar.. and what do you guys mean by action?

basically the action is how close the strings are to the fretboard, I would change the strings first and if that doesn't work spend $20 to get somebody to re string it again and adjust the action.

i just found out that the gretsch g5120 comes with .011 so if i change them to .09 how much of a difference would that actually make as far as bendability and such?
