Cool video! It would be cool to see his Images and Words setup in this kind of detail.
omg! is this the secret to the gilbert tone also?
Just trying this today - lowered my action so it’s buzz festival - much closer to the gilbert tone!
I tried it 1.5mm at 12 fret on the top string and about 1.8mm 12th fret on the lowest string.
Sounds great - buzzing and percusive without having to whack the strings.
I was always under the impression that buzzing is okay, as long as you can’t hear it through the amp.
it’s something I’ve never thought about till reading this thread - I’ve always had medium to high action - never thought to try and incorporate the buzz into my tone - I like it - gives a really nice weird attack sound even with a very light pick attack. I like the partial harmonics from it also - gives some neat tones.
The only thing I don’t like about it so far is - vibrato - it feels horrible - much less control than high action.
