All these measurements that are be banded around, are just general ball park figures, The proof of the pudding is how the guitar plays to you, for your style of playing, as long as you are not getting any fret buzzing, and the guitar plays fine to you, leave well alone. Only fix guitar (or anything else) when you have a problem.
The nut action is the clearance at the 1st with the 3rd held, it should be next to nothing, but not touching.
ok I ve had a very bad morning, so have done nothing. I tried to record this morning; I flubbed everything then i tried to see the bios setting on my computer and froze it, twice! and had to do bios recovery, twice! and i'm am shaking with frustrations right now. I had planned to do the set up this afternoon but i can not even hold my phone without shaking.
You flub so well, we would all like to see you. Now I have never ever recorded a note, and I'm sure this isn't the right moment in time to start, do you want to see a grown man crying, Before throwing out challenges, pick on someone your own size
Wow, them there glasses look a bit cool. I could think of quite a few uses for them there magnificently specs. Sometimes I can look for me glasses for half an hour, only to realise I'm already wearing them.
the headband lets you put two lens for increased magnification and 1 folds up. I got it for free because the light switch was defective. it uses an incandescent flashlight bulb, that's how old it is. I've not tried to fix switch because i can't see it well enough...Catch-22
CTGull ,Derick ,I feel a bit helpless. I marked and sanded the saddle as I described earlier using jig I had setup on my Radial saw table & fence. Took about .5mm off. Yes my finger tips hurt after When I reinserted the saddle it was visibly lower, the reference mark was now hidden.
Strung up and tuned 6th string, checked action @ 12th 2.50mm, spoton! Strung up and tuned rest of strings. Under full tension action is back up to 3mm ineffective results
Kid screaming too much now i cant eve hear to tune anymore
Did you break the edges of the bottom of the saddle, just in case the bottom of the slot isn't perfectly square?? Did you check for any debris in the slot?
It just occurred to me that this is something that most people might not think of or do.
I do it, but only because of a non-related, idiosyncratic practice I got from my engraving shop days regarding how we cut and finish all our blanks. I never even thought about this as any sort of "best practice" method regarding saddles. But it makes so much sense!
