What the proper relief setting for a Gibson Les Paul? I understand that different fingerboard radii have different relief settings, but what about scale length? I have mine at 0.008" right now...

I think it depends on string gauge, how you like your action, thickness of neck, type of wood in neck etc. I don't think there's any 'correct' setting.
'And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

'You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'

I know there isn't a correct way to do it, I was just wondering if there is a generic type setting?
