I get a phone call, "can you show me how to tune a steel guitar I have been given so that I can learn to play it". OK I reply, is it a six string lap or on a stand, six strings comes the reply. Later walking up my drive comes the phoned with an acoustic guitar on their shoulder. "Where is the lap steel?" I ask, "here it is" comes the reply lifting the acoustic off the shoulder. "Ahhh!!! that is not a Steel guitar it is a bog standard classical acoustic, early model of Japanese make and low end of the market type". "But it's got steel strings" comes the answer. I then have to explain that steel strings on an acoustic guitar does not a steel guitar make. Then go further to explain that some clown has wrecked the guitar by putting steel strings on it and that is why the bridge is lifting, the soundboard is bowed, the neck is twisted, and the tuner pegs are making their locating holes oval. The whole mess being now untunable and unplayable. The number of acoustics designed for nylon strings that have been wrecked by someone putting steel strings on them is incredible. Is it only me seeing this happen or do others find the same?
