  • Height of strings for Ibanez AS63

    What’s the normal height for strings of semi hollow? I took a photo of my IbanezAS63 Artcore Vibrante and was wondering if the height is normal at the 12 Fret?

    I keep the height as low as I can get away with without fret buzz and everything playing in tune up and down the neck. There isn't a 'normal' number, there are recommendations. For electric, whether semi hollow or solid, I seem to recall one standard was fretting the 12th fret, there should be just enough clearance to slip in a medium/heavy pick at the highest fret. (Or something like that.)

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

      Your is at the higher side of normal. Using your ruler, the more common string height would be somewhere between 2/32 and 3/32. Your is sitting around 4/32.

          Yeah, there is no real "answer" except personal preference, I think...

          Myself, on my semihollow Epiphone, I use 0,11's and rather high action. So that I can play even loud notes, without losing any dynamics. The downside is that the guitar becomes harder to play fast lead stuff on.
          If somethings important- send a PM. I might be offline for long periods. Rock on!!!

            You measure from the bottom of the string to the top of the fret

              I do the same with no fretting on the 12th and 1.5mm picks. In my Ibanez uv70p (the one which you predicted would turn to saw dust) it is below 1.5mm at the 24th fret (no capo). And relief slightly above zero.

              Anyways, problem with my acoustic is it cant get low enough. The bridge is constraining the height.
