That's a draw back about them,but one the ones I've seen the action seemed pretty good.

post a pic of the action around the 12th fret.
and usually the action is higher there than near the nut.:D (incase you didn't know already)

Since 9/10ths of a fluke is plastic, I'm imagining that they'd pretty much be the same... So, I took a picture of my tenor fluke from the side.

Compared to my little soprano, its really not that high to me...

PS... I attacked my fluke with some silver paint to mark the frets-- I have marks at 5 (you cant see that one) 7 and 10 :)
hope it helps
