I found, via some googling, the answer. the tension on either arrangement will be the same. but since there is more string behind the nut(high strings), there is more metal stretch, which makes for easier bends.


You have to bend more though. So it feels easier, but you have to do more.

I have electric guitars with 24.75", 25", and 25.5" scale lengths, all with similar gauge strings (0.011 to whatever, wound third), and the two 24.75" are easier than the 25.5", which is again easier than the 25". Go figure.

But I have an older Ibanez ES-335 type guitar that does bends better than all of themb but it is a close battle with my black Telecaster. I think it is due to the geometry and design of the neck.

The reason that I began thinking of this is because i switched from my les paul to my strat. I had the LP strung with 10-13-17-30-42-52, and I strung my Strat with 11-14-18-34-44-56; the strat seems just as easy to bend as the LP, and it stays in tune better.

They both work fine. FWIW, for some reason I have often had problems keep G strings in tune on 3+3 necks.

I think as far as 3+3 vs 6 inline it it is more of an issue of what you think looks the best.

In terms of tonal issue I think a bigger issue may be pitched headstocks vs use string of retainers.

In term of bendability the main issue is going to be the fretboard, neck radius and how much crown you have on the frets.

But that is just my opinion.
