In theory this makes some sense. In practice - not so much!

Like the MacGregor Bergelin LongString in post # 164, after a couple of adjustments, you tend to wind up with strings of varying, unpredictable, tension and a loss of both power and control.
That's my Mcgregor below . Sadly The tightening tool is missing and even more sad is that there's a broken string and no way to restring .
