Hmm....those look pretty close to "normal". I assume they used the standard screw holes?
I have hipshots on mine with the alignment plates and like them a lot; changing strings is really convenient, and I didn't have to drill new holes. Plus, I've always preferred the "grover look" to the "kluson look".
Yeah the stock holes. I tried the hipshots with the UMP plates on my last studio - installed that one myself lol. I wanted to keep the kluson look on these and skip the thumbwheels.
March?New Epiphone Alex Lifeson from Musician's Friend. Setup was pretty bad. Got it dialed in much better. Still getting some fret buzz on the small E string on almost the whole neck. Wonder if it's the bridge saddle? Wanted to send it back, but they say that it might be next March before they get any more.
Most new guitars need a setup if you dont like factory spec though?It felt like that was to dissuade my from sending it back. It feels wrong to have to take a new guitar in for some fret work/setup. I'm not sure that I want to call their bluff?
It doesn't start buzzing and fretting out during bends until after the 10th fret. The open stings sound fineMost new guitars need a setup if you dont like factory spec though?
The whole neck makes me wonder if the nut slot is too low. Confirmed the neck isnt twisted at all?
