My Conversation with Albert King

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!
