Converting a 12 String Guitar into a 6 String Guitar

Can I take every other string off of my 12 string guitar and make it into a 6 string?



Counting from high to low, if you remove strings # 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, & 12, the remaining strings would leave you with a 6 string guitar.  This 6 string guitar will be a little different however.  The neck will be wider than usual for a 6 string and the strings will not be centered on the fret board.  Because of the reduced pull of the strings, you may need to relax your truss rod a little.
