Musicman stingray 5 neck relief/higher action

Musicman stingray 5 neck relief/higher action

Hey folks.

I’m lucky enough to own a fantastic 97 SR5 with a maple neck and ceramic pickup. It’s a beast.
Now, I’ve toyed around with multiple string heights and truss rod adjustments and bridge settings. I was always looking for that sweet spot for my kinda playing (pop/rock and I like to dig in a bit)

Recently I loosened the truss a little more than I’d normally have it (about the thickness of my bank card when 1st and last fret depressed down) and holy cow!!! It is absolutely singing.

Even acoustically it’s just got huge tone. My action is probably a bit higher than the majority of players I watch on this forum but my god I love it.

Anyone else tinkered with the higher than average side action.

Many thanks
