Re: Struggling to get decent action on S470
My Ibanez S470 (04 model) has excellent action. When I originally got mine it was all over the shop, and I sent it to my local tech and he fixed it right up. As long as the neck is nice and straight, it should be viable for a nice setup. I know with mine, the major adjustment was the nut height (it was freaking massive!).
So yeah, i think it's worth it to get a professional to do the initial setup, and then from there you can tweak a few things to your liking.
