WTF is happening with the tailpiece, is it raining?
Can u see the Pic? It may be more like 4 64ths and 5 on plain..... Tapes have a sliding metal tip that allows for a 16th of play whether u are pushing or pulling so..... Not so. Accurate for guitar work lolThat's fine.
The target for a setup to work from is 4/64, but not every guitar can go that low for all players.
Like I said... if you're anywhere below 5, you're fine and within spec.
3/64 without buzz is very good for the bass strings.
I don't think there's a high fret..... If there is it'll be sanded down in. A week lol...... I'm getting some nice notches in my frets now..... All those Angus aggressive vibratos and bendsDid you fret rock with a staight edge? A debit card is a great fret rocker if you suspect a stray high fret.
Without feeler gauges,..... a dime is about 3.4/64" or .053" and a nickel is about 4.9/64" or .077". Both just about perfect for Gibsons recommended heights. A nickel is also the perfect width for adjusting stopbar height.
I don't think they did that on accident, but never found anything in writing to prove it.
Eventually it'll be too bad and I'll have to get then crowned again but for now I'll keep on abusing her...... Bought in 2014.... So 6 years has removed a bunch of finish on neck and body and tail piece and other Nickel and chrome is petinaed and bubbling up...... I wouldn't dare buy one aged because I age them fast enough as is lolI don't think there's a high fret..... If there is it'll be sanded down in. A week lol...... I'm getting some nice notches in my frets now..... All those Angus aggressive vibratos and bends
