I was just reminded of a conversation I had a long while back with the great Albert King. Albert’s people brought in his flying V for a refret.
While at that time I did not know as much as I could about Albert, I knew enough to have a healthy amount of nerves and excitement.
ALBERT calls to talk about it. We get the frets figured out then I ask
ME. “Albert, how do you like your action”.
ALBERT. “ACTION, WHAT’S ACTION?
ME “. It’s how high your strings are.
ALBERT ” WHAT ARE MY CHOICES”.
ME ” low medium or high”.
ALBERT. ” I’ll TAKE MEDIUM”.
Then I tried to make some small talk that Dan Erlewine who built his oversize V was a friend …… It was getting hard to understand at that point!
Memories! I may have photos somewhere ?? This is not my photo…….. Just for fun!
