I have an ASAT with a med/high action, more on the high side. I like it for my regular playing, it really sings. And I use 10's. Kimock was talking about Derek Trucks and how he can play a regular set up guitar and still get his wonderful tone. When I do it, the tension against the string is like walking on rice paper. There is a fine tolerance between good tone and bad. Lots of 'rattle' in the contact. Mostly when playing non adjacent strings like playing 6ths. I do have other less used guitars, non that have the tone of the ASAT. But would one of them be better if set up for slide only (mostky). By the way, in my opinion, Kimock is right up in the same stratosphere as Trucks. And when they play together. man.
