Hi All, Besides my house and my car, my new American Professional Tele is the nicest thing I own. (It might actually be nicer than my house.) The sound is amazing through a THR10 (tube amp to follow down the road) and the neck is a marvel. The issue I'm having is that the tall thin frets combined with the very light strings it came with (I assume they're 9s) make bending strings TOO easy. That is, it's sometimes hard NOT to bend them. And the frets are so tall that just fretting a note can actually pull it sharp. My question is: Will thicker strings help? Or is it more a question of adapting my very inexpert and probably heavy-handed style to this nuanced instrument? I've noticed that notes still ring clearly even if I don't press the string down to the fingerboard... Is that how I'm supposed to be playing this thing? That's going to take some getting used to. I'd hate to think I just bought an instrument that out of my league, but I'm starting to suspect that may be the case. Thanks for any advice!
