Perfect 4th Pullup on B String of a JEM?

Hello All-

Ive had my Jem7V for a couple weeks now. Everything seems to be working fine. However I noticed something.

I am getting a perfect 4th pull on the B string, and an almost perfect 5th pullup on the G string...is this odd at all? My action is a little high, if that matters.

Thanks!

-Andy

do you find odd that one string pulls more than other? if that's the case, that's what's supposed to happen. (try the harmonic in the gstring, 5th fret...)

My bad...i think i forgot one major part of my worry. I had gotten the vibe that a perfect 4th pullup on the g string was as good as it got for the Lo-Pro or something like that. I am aware that all the strings pullup at different rates on a trem (except for Steinberger's?). So I am assuming I am good to go?

Thanks guys!

As Caprile said, it's all dependent on how high the action is, which usually means the trem is high enough for nothing to impeed it, and the higher the action the more pullup before the strings fret out

Satch and Steve take advantage of this effect when doing whammy tricks... fret 14 on the high E, and 15 on the B. Pull up a little, and the E goes to 15, the B to 17. You're essentially playing a D major followed by an E minor, which sounds good in everyone's favorite key.
