    i saw this thread a couple days ago that said that the strings should have the same distance from the strings to the neck thoughout the it. it said that if they are not, you should get something replaced, but i don't remember what that something was. could someone help me out?:)

    I don't fully understand the question, but if you're asking if the strings should be the same distance from the neck at the headstock end as at the bridge end, I've never seen it, ever. The strings will always be closer to the fretboard at the top(fret1) than at the bottom (fret20+) on a properly adjusted neck. If you take a more precise measurement of your string height and report back, I'm sure that you'll get a more precise answer.

    oops, maybe i just misread it or something
     
  4. Maybe it was on string spacing? as in the distance between the E A D and G should be relatively the same?
