Don't know if this has been posted before but for those that are interested in it, here it is. Strange that the custom shop specifies 1/8 turn of truss rod counterclockwise for relief and uses top if 2nd fret and top of 16th fret using low E as measurement and the Gibson website setup tips shows 1/4 turn truss rod relief with capo on first fret etc. Anyway interesting as Custom shop sets the pickups really close to strings at 3/64 for both.
