    i can’t play because i spend VERY little time and effort learning.
    as i said before, i’m more of a collector.

    as far as your example:
    .012 is considered medium/light for an acoustic.
    if you changed them to .016, the guitar would need adjustments to make up for the difference in tension.
    all guitar necks have certain amount of “bow” to them. the gauge of strings (and tension they provide) is a factor in this bow. Changing the gauge of strings (drastically, going one gauge either direction has minimal effect) changes this tension, which changes the amount of bow in your neck. the change in bow changes your action and intonation.

    if you know how to make these adjustments without making things worse, great.
    if you don’t, then bring it to someone who does.

    the difference is that i’m actually experienced and educated at working on my vehicle (i can’t work with wood to save my life though).

    so when it comes time to do something with my vehicle, no problem. I know where to start, where to get parts, what brands to use, and i even have all the necessary tools to do so.

    adjusting the guitar on the other hand....

    All you need is a wrench.

    There are a million how-to's online. Very simple to do. I imagine the mini nootch's could do it. Just remember, wrench, not hammer ;)

    Expect it when you least expect it. Like when those little nootches aren't around to jump on my back

    shirt kid went for a dip in the bayou today.

    freaking parade passing and this dude takes a dive into the mudflat to retrieve a cast net that was partially buried.
    don’t even know how the hell he even saw that thing.

    Was it serviceable or has a gar been in it? Garfish will fuck up a castnet but you already know that.

    don’t know.
    he pitched it back in the drink (to be retrieved later) so he didn’t have to carry it around during the parade.

    He probably could have thrown it well enough to snag all kinds of throws by pitching it up on the floats !!!
