Don’t know what some of you classify as easy pedal action but both of my push pulls play as easy as my Zums did but not as easy as a Sho Bud I had. To me, a proper set up Sho Bud has easiest pedals, ...

I installed the Dean Chance changers on a 68 push pull that I have. Changers are awesome and an exact match to factory changers but think they work much smoother.

That’s how I do my split on 6th string. By utilizing A pedal to bring back 6th half tone. Works very well and doesn’t affect anything until you lower 6th.
Some great ideas you have Kelcey.
