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.
Jimmy didn’t lower both Es. The chart is correct except LKL and LKR are reversed.
What is the source of your information, guys? It makes sense to me that LKL and LKR should be reversed, and the dual function of RKR reminds me of several old student model guitars.
Jimmy only lowered string 8. Like Lloyd he didn’t lower string 4.
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
