lmao, you weren't kidding. He's playing on tightropes!Not me, but check out Ronni Le Tekrø.
You can fit a pencil in between the strings and the neck (no joke)
Mark Day and I were just talking about this.
2:12 for guitar action closeup.
This ^^^.No... Typically about 1mm above the 12th fret.
If you are playing in a way that requires high action that’s one thing. But as I said there is no tonal or volume benefit.I do all my own guitars , just did a fret job on an Ibanez 550, pulled the frets leveled the board , stainless high and narrow frets , action is a little under 1/16 of an inch, 3/64’s on 12th fret, it all depends on how you play . Also depend on the guitar , I have some guitars that play and feel great at an 1/8 of an inch at the 12th. Although slide can be a-little challenging
Well, descriptions of "high" and "low" action can be loaded. How low is your action? People even add fall away -- or different relief on treble vs bass sides via plek -- for partly similar reasons to typical string height adjustments (partly different effect, but still).If you are playing in a way that requires high action that’s one thing. But as I said there is no tonal or volume benefit.
It’s just another one of those fallacies that keeps on getting repeated.
