 Morning all, just for shi&$ and giggles, where do you like your strings? Low, medium, high? I would love to know!!!!!

Electrics, 3/64s B 2/64s T (or there about) with an arrow straight neck, frets have to be level for this to work. 10 gauge strings

Acoustics around 5/64s B 3~4/64s T   12 gauge strings.

Like all guitars, the height at which the neck functions correctly. 7/64ths I think(?)* for the two E strings at the 17 on my Teles and strats and Esquires, rest fit the radius for that guitar.  I don't remember on Les Paul.

*I write this stuff down for an obvious reason.

if that's true, than, in reality 7/64s is quite high actually.
