Which is better: a lightweight steel guitar or a heavyweight carbon fiber one?
A new study by researchers at The University of Pennsylvania finds that the heavier the guitar, the better it performs and performs well.
But even if you’re looking for the lighter, more versatile guitar that can handle heavy playing, the researchers say it’s not a guarantee.
In fact, the research shows that the lighter and more versatile a guitar, when it’s heavier and more expensive, tends to perform better.
“It’s like if you were to compare two different guitars with different strings, but you were only comparing the strings on one side,” said Richard D. Zaloga, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering and electrical and computer engineering and a senior author on the study.
“And the heavier you are, the more likely you are to end up with a bad guitar.”
Zaloka said the findings have implications for the design of electric guitars, since the heavier and heavier they are, more they need to be designed to be able to handle heavier playing.
The study, which was published this month in the Journal of Applied Mechanics, found that the average guitar in a comparison was 10 percent heavier than it should be.
But the study showed that the guitar was only 10 percent lighter in certain circumstances.
In those circumstances, the guitar had to be lighter in order to perform optimally.
For instance, if the guitar is heavier than the string, the string’s weight is being applied more to the lower string.
This can result in a guitar with more distortion than would otherwise be the case.
Conversely, if there are strings on both sides of the guitar that have more resistance to the string than the lower one, the strings can be used as a bridge.
In that case, the bridge could be used to make the guitar’s strings more flexible, but the overall guitar is still heavier.
The researchers also measured the string resistance in the guitar and found that if the strings were of the same weight, the higher-powered guitar would perform better, but they didn’t find any difference in the string strength between the two guitars.
Zeloga said the study doesn’t address how the guitar strings would be mounted on a car.
If a car uses a single guitar, it could be a lot easier to install a new guitar string.
The study also looked at the effects of the guitars’ size and weight on performance.
The heavier the instrument, the less responsive it was.
In particular, the heavier guitars were more prone to vibrating and to vibrate too much.
The researchers said this could be due to the guitars weight, which would increase its vibrations as it travels through the strings.
But there were no differences in the performance of the heavier instruments compared to the lighter ones.
The studies also found that guitars with thinner strings were more responsive, but their performance was not significantly different than guitars with thicker strings.
In all, the studies showed that, if you want to play a heavier guitar, you should consider a heavier-weighted guitar.
But the researchers cautioned that the study was limited to just comparing heavier guitars to lighter ones, and that the results could be biased because it included some guitars with longer strings.
The results also didn’t account for the different acoustic properties of different strings.
Zolago said that’s because acoustic properties can change depending on how the strings are placed.
So the researchers didn’t include this information in the analyses.
“There’s probably a reason for that,” Zaluga said.
The research also didn and doesn’t account properly for the guitar models.
For instance, some guitars used different strings for the same purpose, which might have resulted in some of the results being skewed because the guitars with the longer strings were used more often.
“In general, if we’re comparing two guitars of different shapes, there’s a chance that we might be doing something wrong with that,” he said.
Zaloga said one possible way to address this would be to look at the guitars that people use to play the same instrument.
“You would be able compare them with a different guitar,” he explained.
“It’s more accurate.”
