I have to disagree with it being a problem with my technique as I have been playing for over 10 years and not had this happen before. I currently have a Les Paul which I play also and does not have the same problem. I realise raising the action gives the guitar a different feel...I wouldn't mind raising the action a fraction as it is nice and fast at the moment, but for playing aggresively with chords etc the strings are just to close to the fretboard for my liking. A mate told me that I may have to get the Nut or string saddle (or both) re-cut due to the string being too close to the edge of the guitar. I only got this guitar a month or so ago and have 2-3 gigs per week as of next week so what should I do - just take it to a tech to sort out?
