Got a used strat this year and it is set up floating (my first floating strat). So I love it and have played it exclusively for several months. Pulled out my EC the other day, and found the action too low, as compared to what I am now used to. Took the plunge and bought a set of allen wrenches and raised the saddles. Took me a few tries to get it to feel right. It's not as high as my floating one but I do find it better and I can "dig in" as they say. So I've lost my virginity in that regard. The guy that usually sets up my guitars told me I needed a fret job because it was "zinging" on the E string. It seems ok now so we'll see how much more time I can get out of the original frets. Being retired I figure 12 bucks for wrenches beats a pricey fret job.
