I've played actions at pretty much all levels, and I think discussions that veer off into this area are nonsense. It's impossible to define "better tone" and there are so many factors that enter into...

I have action on a couple of guitars as low as 4/64ths, but at the 24th fret.

I'd say that action of around 4/64ths at the 12th fret, bass side, and 3/64ths at the 12th fret, treble side, would be...

Probably not what you want in an electric guitar, honestly, because you're not going to be playing it the same. Agile guitars sometimes offer a "wide" neck profile with a 1 3/4" nut width. Check...

If you go with an SG, be sure to find one that's NOT neck-heavy. The SG body is so small and the forward strap button located badly, so many SGs are neck-heavy. You don't want to have to support the...

Absolutely not -- the trem is recessed and there's obviously room in the spring cavity for the trem to be pulled. It's not resting on the body.

Mostly 10's would be fine with just three springs.
In fact, you can balance 11's with three springs.

The real reason for the extra springs has more to do with the ease with which you can dive the...

You don't get it, Grasshoppah. You ARE paying extra for the MinETune/PowerTune/GFarce/TronicalTune/Robot. The extra is just part of the selling price, and you can't buy the guitar without it. Same as...

This is a question for the '70's.

Back then, the answer would have been "A Twin Reverb for practice and a Marshall Stack for gigs."

Wait, what?
It doesn't matter.
None of those speakers can reproduce "an entire octave down in E".

You're going to mostly be listening to harmonics two octaves up. Most 4x12s drop off rapidly below...
