    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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?
