That looks pretty consistent. You can set my Ducati's valve clearances.

Measured 12th on the E string for consistency (both these are 5's) - My zoot seems to be 3mm as does the ACG but the latter feels higher!

What's the scale length on your ACG, Max? If it's more than the usual 34", your strings will be set tighter than a 34" scale merely to achieve the same notes, which could maybe give the 'feel' of having to press them down a bit harder when playing?

I think it's 34 - the same as the zoot anyway! - having different scale necks was confusing me! The Peavey was longer than both so I let my son have it.
