High E Choking

High E Choking

I setup my JP60 action similar to Petrucci specs – pretty flat neck, low action. Everything is great but the High E around the 12th fret…I’m wondering if I have a high fret somewhere?

I could raise the action, but you know what? I find bending on the JP60 to be very hard – I use the same strings on my Les Paul with a 50’s neck and its WAY easier to bend – nice and slinky. On this JP60 it feels like I’m trying to bend up barb wire it feels ‘that tight’. Its hard to explain.

I don’t want to raise the action for this exact reason.

In the video, would you consider that acceptable for really low action?

Any tips?
