Never heard that one ... maybe they meant high action ?
Did the guitars get setup for Kimock?SarnoMusicSolutions wrote:Kimock described Jerry's neck relief (bow) to be quite high as well as fairly high action. I guess the action was high enough so that up high it didn't buzz. Kimock also said that Jerry's guitar played more in tune up high on the neck than down low because of this excessive relief (bow).
Waldo may have some details on this.
So true. That's why I don't give much creedance to any presented measurements as being "Garcia's setup". And, I need to do a truss rod adjustment usually once, sometimes twice/year on my guitars simply because climate conditions winter to summer can change the action and neck relief considerably. Therefore, IMHO, any measurements beyond the last time Jerry played those instruments, or current measurements, are simply that, current, and have no historic value.billy_v wrote:(Of course, it's been years since Jer had them set up, so who's to say whether they're any longer set up to his preference.)
