Hello all, I am trying to understand what the relationship is between the length or height h of a guitar neck and how far in the x direction it is displaced (δ) given the same tension in the strings and width of the neck, and assuming the neck is anchored and rigid at the guitar's body. Is it analogous to the attached hangman diagram? My gut says the two seem analogous to an end load cantilever beam but I don't know if it is that simple. Hopefully this makes sense... I am not a physics person and may be using some of these terms incorrectly.
