Action height question
I have a js1000, and I read that Joe Satriani's action height measures 2/64ths at the 12 fret. I lowered my action to 2/64ths at the 12th fret and that made the action a little over 1mm at the 22nd fret on the low E string. I get string buzz, not that you can notice in the crunch and ultra channels, but in the clean channel you can hear a bit of buzzing. Does that sound right?
I dont have a really solid way of measuring in 64ths so I found a conversion and found out that 2/64ths = 0.794 of an inch and im using a feeler gauge.
am I doing something wrong?
