I cracked smiling at most comment in the thread, which is the reason I opened it
He obviously has no idea what a millimeter is or where they measure the action on a guitar.
I bet he knows what a 9 mm is.
That's his magnum opus.
Here he is installing his own pickups: https://www.facebook.com/officialyn...kups-seymour-duncan-fender-/3208743069351462/
EVH did, too.
I’m sure Yngwie said he worked in a luthiers shop in Sweden and did the early scalloping of his strats, I think he also did the 3 bolt to 4 bolt conversions on some of his strats as well
That’s what I thought too, but Dweezil Zappa has a podcast where he “interviews” another guitarist and they talk about a VH album. He had Nuno on for Fair Warning FYI. Anyway, Dweezil had a chance to play Ed’s guitars quite often and he said that the action was pretty standard.
Having stupid low action is overrated, it doesn’t really help you play faster but it might help chord a bit easier. IMO getting the right radius on the strings to match to frets is much more important and a little higher action helps with sustain and bends.
I have the string action on my guitar as low as can be without having any excessive string buzz...very minimal buzz. If I were to lower the action any more and there was string buzz then the action is way too low! I don't measure my string action...I hear my string action.
String moves downwards when you fret it, low action prevents that effect and you can be more consistent with your picking hand. There is less time involved with fretting too. Intonation across the board is better with low action.
I agree with all of this as well, it’s about finding a balance between all the factors.
Damn that video was a mixed bag, some bits Yngwie sounded great, other bits sounded really rough. The Strat with small headstock with the birds eye maple is gorgeous though. My YJM Strat is the only guitar I regret selling, I will probably have to buy another one day.
It's an Yngwie millimeter, more.
Yngwie "masterclass," lol.
"Hey, look how good I can play. If you want to get better play as good as me."
He's sloppy af too.
Karl Sandars is another player on scalloped boards with very high action. I believe there is a 2015 or a 2017 rig rundown on YouTube with a close up, the action is rather nutty. That being said it doesn’t stop him from shredding.
Sloppy af? As compared to who? Not sure if you’re joking
Joking? Have you seen the video? He plays Arpeggios from Hell right at the start. You can look up his recent concert videos too, it's a sad thing.
Honestly, that's kind of the way he's always played outside of studio albums. He definitely plays fast and loose with the timing of most things. When he records though, it's usually played straight and on the beat.
