Let me try this again and see if it won't be diverted towards an ego-pissing contest between 2 people again; In the latest "Bass Player" it was noted that Entwistle mentioned in an interview that he liked his action so low, that, "I like my strings on the other side of the frets." The BP article said his basses were set up with the lowest possible action to facilitate his "high-speed triplet runs, taps, and slaps...." That is my "dream action" but I've never been able to achieve it, even though I've done my own set-ups for years and years. I've learned a bit about his "typewriter" finger style from his instructional videos but I've never been able to get a bass to play/sound like his without incurring a lot of fret noise and false harmonics. I've taken basses I've set up to music store tech's and they say, "You really like low action don't you?"....what they don't know is that I brought it in to see if they could get it even lower than I could without sacrificing playability!!!! My question is - how do you think he achieved such incredibly low action???........Maybe; - his use of very high-end, highly-customized, basses? - his ability to hire the best bass tech's? - his "magic touch"? Your thoughts are appreciated.
