I don't have a gypsy jazz guitar but I am learning gypsy jazz on my acoustic. Right now it has 12-56 strings with about 3/32-4/32" action at the 12th fret. For the most part I can alternate pick quite fast on the guitar. But seems I have to work extra hard. How would you recommend I set up my guitar to best practice? Should I get lighter strings? If so, what kind and is there an issue with putting gypsy jazz strings on a regular acoustic?
Advice on string action (i.e. string height) is also appreciated.
