Great tone and playing AW...as well as Luna and Waldo.

I'm curious how you guys are set up as far as string height?

I'm currently chomping at the bit waiting on my ao Wolf that should be finished come June...can't wait! I will post a vid when I get it.

Thanks for sharing folks

Ahhh...Cripeowner I had missed your post the first time around....nice. Is that the guitar that was just for sale? Hard to tell, the video is really dark.

Jalevinemd, AO is Andrew Olson, a mighty fine luthier in Freeport, Maine.

Great playing all...and the tone sounds spot on! I'd also be curious to string height in addition to pickup height if it's not too much trouble. I always like hearing others and comparing setups. Good stuff!

I'm not sure this information will be useful to anyone, but I set my strings as low as they can go, and raise them slightly from there looking for a clean sound whether using a light or heavy touch. I also have a slight bow in the neck. No measurements.

The pickups are set at 3/16", measured from the bottom of the strings.

August, i was checking out your video to hear the guitar and about 15 seconds into it i could care less and was diggin your playin !! Nice phrasing !!! Guitar sounds great, but the playing greater !! Thanks for posting !! If you didn't live in CO i'd have you come by and try my home-brew tiger style to see how it could sound with somebody that's actually good playing it !! :lol:
