I split all but the D# and F#'s on my BMI S10 and all splits were in tune w/o additional rods or "split tuners". Great all around. Whoosh I hadn't sold mine but it wasn't a 12 string

Steve, just a thought but it is possible that an old timer who was a C6er had that guitar step up for C6 and not E9. That would explain a lot of what's seen. A shot of the changer end with the hex adj ...
