I'd imagine not...Low action doesn't change the tension, just the distance between the fretboard and string. So I'll say no.

not sure but i think if your strings are lower you lose a bit of sustain

do fat bass players actually contribute to sustain?
It just seemed a good idea at the time to try putting a tenth in above it, which is a corny interval. But somebody had to do it just once, and now no one can ever do it again.'

How low are we talking here?

Because if the strings are flat against the fretboard, then your sustain will be severly diminished. Practically to the point of you not being able to play your instrument at all anymore.

i would believe that it would have an effect on the sustain. but it definently would not be a noticable difference.

I don't think action has an affect on sustain as much as pickup height does. Unless the strings are so low they're actually hitting the frets when they vibrate over and over, I can't imagine it'll make any difference at all. Pickup height is a different story, but that doesn't necessarily have to do with action.

Action has nothing to do with sustain. I can't believe you guys are actually wasting time on such lame topic!

Lol, go put your action so low that the strings are touching the frets

doesn't sustain now, does it?
