They are, haha. I know a guy with a dremel. Oh and I traded my blue RG920QM for it. I love that guitar, but it's not for me.

Vai uses a similar action to mine: 2.5mm at the last fret. Mine is higher at the 12th, though.

I must also say that unless one measures for real, action is hard to gauge by eye. Yngwie has scalloped...

Okay, I agree with you there. Then I must define that higher action to me gives a "fuller" sound, but that's to me.

Doesn't matter as long as you're comfortable. Personally, I put the thumb behind the neck until I'm playing at the 15th fret or higher, then I put my thumb over the neck.

Pretty sure that he said in some interview that the 4.5-5mm is the high E and 6-7mm is the low e, and that from wood to string is 6mm @ 12th fret on high E.
