Do Strats have low action?

mordacain Strat-O-Master Low action is definitely easier for playing fast, but more difficult for bending. High action is exactly the opposite.

How tall are the strings on a Stratocaster?

The final height depends upon how easy they bend, and whether there is any buzzing. On my 7.25 inch radius strat, the final height came out to 5/64 on the high E through D strings, and 6/64 for the A and Low E. It’s honestly different for each guitar I have. Dmac73 and SAguitar like this. I set my guitars’ action at about 500 feet above sea level.

How do you adjust the sound of a string?

Turn the string-pole screw directly under the string you wish to adjust clockwise to sink the screw and lessen the string’s sound, or counterclockwise to raise the screw and boost the string’s sound. There is no standard level of adjustment, as sound is highly subjective. Switch to the next pickup (if fitted) and repeat Step 3.
