JTV59 Setup Info to lower string action and proper pickup height Can't find any in James Tyler Variax Guitars / Workbench HD Posted March 17, 2015 Check the nut on your 59. Mine was way too high so I took off 1/16" from the bottom of it and it plays far better. May even take a slight bit more off sometime. Be careful if doing it yourself, I've done a lot on my guitars over the years so feel confident. Also check neck adjustment, I prefer VERY little neck relief, literally two sheets of paper and I measure at the 9th fret with the Low E held down at fret one and the last fret.
