    Hey guys,

    I'm currently staying in Malaysia, but will be moving to San Francisco soon, and i heard that since Malaysia is a hot country, you should string a few pounds lower when i move to a colder environment...if not it will break easily.

    Is this true? :eek:
    My ideal string: BG80
    Tension: 29lbs

    thanks :)

    yes and no... it doesn't matter what the heat is outside, it matters what it is inside where you're playing.

    There is not much of a temperature range in which most people are comfortable in. The one thing is that AC might be more common here... not sure though.
