What measurment do you consider high low and medium action?


Recommended Posts

Low is frets buzzing at any encouragement from heavy fretting, hard strumming, etc...

High is where you could slip a deck of playing cards under the strings at the 12th fret.


In between is medium.


Unless the guitar is used for alot for slide, I see no reason not to keep the action as low as practical.

Requires proper set up, neck relief, intonation, pickup height - in other words, the way it was designed to be.
