Action:

 Electric at 21st or 22nd fret: 1.5mm +- .1mm (by feel)
 1st fret up .5 mm max (.2 or .3mm really) .3 or .4 is "easy to play" above .5 = intonation problems 1.2 minimum

 Acoustic:  at the 22nd fret: 2.75mm, .1083' is not too bad. 1.75mm, .0689' is preferred
 1st fret same as electric

Capo 1st and last fret. Should have a ~ .3mm gap in the middle (less than .5mm)
