read title. and i mean does it affect it in any way possible. plus do i have to adjust the truss rod, or is that something that i might have to do, might not?

Unless you really really really know what your doing do not mess with your truss rod. Check out what kind of bridge you have, and you should be able to do some of what you would like with your action from there. Too low though and you'll get buzzing.

Yes. Lower action = louder sound.


not necessarily.

higher pickups= louder soud. if you lower the action without lowering the pickups, volume and tone will change slightly.

also, if you go too low, you will get fret buzz

i've got a floyd rose, so i was hoping i wouldn't have to mess with the truss rod, cause i don't want to do that. does the height affect noise at all? i mean unwanted noise, not what i play.

what do you mean? too low, you get fret buzz. to high, the pickups are too far from the strings

no truss rod adjustment necessary.

The truss rod adjusts the relief of the neck. It doesn't affect the action.

To high, and it's more difficult to play.
You can just raise the pick ups if you like, that's got nothing to do with the action

no, i think you misunderstand or i typed something wrong. if i lower action, i'm aware of the possibility of fret buzz, but will the static and other unwanted noises be affected at all? i don't plan on messing with the truss rod at all.

yeah, i know..actually, i said that in my first post. but its not always harder to play on high action. i know for a fact slide works way better with high action. however, for all other circumstances, you are right.

EDIT: okay, i understand now. no, static or that type of noise wont be affected.
