    I’m having a hard time bending on my 245 SE. It’s very hard to catch the string located above. I don’t have this problem on my Silver Sky at all.

    Could an adjustment to the stoptail help with this? I was thinking about raising the bass side a bit or lowering the treble side to help but wanted to confirm.

    I often raise the bridge or saddles on the treble side for this purpose, it may help you.

    So I should only do this for the treble side but not the bass side?

    Get a pro setup

    If they don't work, use lighter strings and practice for about 3-6 months to build strength.
    It sounds counter-intuitive but, it actually works

    I was up to 10-52s and feeling sore and stiff in the left forearm. My teacher at the time switched me to 8-38s for 9 months.
    I've been back on 9-42s for about 8 months. I'm thinking by Summer, I'll prolly switch to 9-46
