Re: GR-30 and Guitar Craft Tuning

Read the manual for setup tips, particularly regarding pick placement,
and try adjusting the sensitivity to various levels.  If you are not
already doing so, try a thicker gauge string.  I have a Godin tuned
to this tuning, and am using a pretty heavy lower gauge.  Also I don't
follow the craft recommendations for the first 4 strings, they result
in tension that is so tight it can twist the neck.  I try for as
even a tension across all strings as possible.
