    likewise a long distance from nut to peg, will
    give strings a more elastic feel. IOW tension
    at pitch is fixed as per laws of physics, but a ...

    G&L "EQ controls" are not centered at any
    frequency at all. They are passive, cut-only,
    simple tone controls. The pre-amp in a G&L
    is not an "EQ-preamp". It's just a pre-amp.
