marksound Posted July 14, 2005 Report Share Posted July 14, 2005 Last night at rehearsal I had a conversation with the bass player that went something like this: Him: "This bass has really high action. The strings are almost touching the frets." Me: "You mean low action." Him: "No, that's tension. Action is how the string vibrates." Me: "Wrong." Him: "Talk to people who build guitars." Me: "I do every day." So to set the record straight, A. is 'action' the height of the strings from the fretboard or the vibration pattern of a plucked string? B. Am I losing my mind? C. Does B. have anything to do with A.? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
