I was wondering what type of the the setup Django preferred?
I know in general his guitars had a higher action.
When I listen to his recordings I never hear any fret buzz.
Is that the result of his setup or the mics of the day covered up a lot of the artifacts like a fret buzz?
On the contrary, when I listen to most of the greats of today there's fret buzz. With some it's less and some have more. Stochelo is one who's sound is usually clean but recently there was a thread where his tone was a little criticized and the person said perhaps because of low action. I don't know but I'm thinking now maybe that wasn't his personal instrument?
Sometimes when I listen to the greats of today I wish they'd setup their guitars so it goes away and trade a few 16th and 32nd notes for a cleaner sound.
