Ok so my strat is still kind of new to me, so what is the best way to set it up? It's a 2008 american standard. I really like the action of my epi g400, the strings are easier to bend, and the sg hasn't been set up, it's action just felt nice right out of the box, how should I set up my strat to where I can do easier bends? Thanks
Read Fender's Strat setup guide to start with.
considered lighter strings?
One thing is tht the SG has a shorter scale length so the strings will feel more loose and therefore be easier to bend. Setting up the Am Standard strats is kind of a bitch, I just went through it with mine. I'd drop a string gauge and maybe lower your action a tad.
Start here... Very good video set...
