I belkieve the Jimmy Day Copedent is INCORRECT.
Jimmy Day’s LKL was used to lower his E’s
Your setup doesn’t show any way to lowers the Es
By flipping the P1 & P3 the player can rock off the 2 pedal & lower the Es… like falling off a log.
What you say makes sense, Charley. I’m not sure where I got this chart, but it doesn’t look right to me now.
Here is the correct scoop on Jimmy Day’s set-up. LKL raised both F# to G, LKR raised both E’s to F, jimmy did not lower his 4th to E . RKR lowered the second string to C# and the 8th string to Eb giving him a 1/2 stop on 2. Marlen guitars decided to put a 1st string lower to F which Jimmy never used.It was thier choice told to me by Jimmy. That would be on RKR
Leonard sent me a copedent chart in the mail, and it matches the chart above.
I would like the jimmy day setup as well, if said copedent ( above) is incorrect .
I believe that the chart above is now correct.
Thank you bOB
Per Leonard’s comment, you have the LKL and LKR reversed on this chart. The e raises should be on LKR
