I bought a Vintage Viator from here a while ago and I've had it in Terz tuning since (like a capo on the 3rd fret). As much as I love this sound, I'd like to sometimes use this guitar as a backup so I'd like to put it in standard tuning, but 21.5" is SHORT! What would you use?
For reference, I like a higher tension string anyway. My tele has 13s on and my seller-style has 11s on, so if someone says 'put 16s on' then challenge accepted!
