  2. Nobody makes a guitar that doesn't need a set up when you get it home. Nobody makes guitars for you. But they do make freely available figures and numbers and such, and even the order in which things are done, so you aren't flopping around in the dark trying figure out what you can and can not make right based on what "seems" good to you. Guitars do not work that way. rct

  6. Don't think it has anything to do with the wood being "too dry". I think it's more about what's available in the world now. Dark rosewood is more desirable and is also become harder and harder to find. Since the darker stuff is in short supply it's probably being reserved for higher end models, custom builds, etc. Kind of the same reason Fender has, on some models and guitar lines started using pau ferro instead of rosewood. Conditioning the fretboard may only marginally darken it, but this would be analogous to putting pearls on a pig if aesthetically you just really like dark rosewood

  7. I wanted to share photos of my Les Paul that Les signed before he passed. I went to see him at the Iridium in New York City https://i.imgur.com/bvBYWzw.jpg https://i.imgur.com/IhjgCGp.jpg https://i.imgur.com/ddQ4GeL.jpg

  9. the bottom line to this, are some people, are just NEVER EVER frikken happy. One of my ex-coworkers used to say about our times doing IT support together... "Users! They'd complain if you hung em with a brand new rope!" I've got about 20 guitars, all but 2 were purchased new. Was everyone PERFECT.. nope.. Heck! nothing in life is. There's a limit where you just gotta let it go, and play the stupid thing... Yet these threads pop up a lot, and they get tiresome...

  10. Those videos are difficult to watch when you are an animal lover. Both of my dogs came down with cancer about the same time. Different types of cancer, but deadly no less. I spent well over $32,000.00 in cancer treatments for both of them, with one of them " cancer free" after about one year , only to lose her to cancer about four months after being told she had fully recovered. On top of that I quit a high six figure income job to stay at home with them so I could take care of them. Every one said I was crazy for doing what I did spending so much and quitting my job, but if you care for th

  12. The bridge is rammed flat against the guitar on the G/B/E side, that's why you've got fret buzz. Loosen the strings and turn the thumbwheel of the bridge to raise it on that side. Then tune to pitch again and give it a try. It will probably take a couple of attempts to get the action where you want it and take all of 10 minutes to do. Don't send a guitar back for that! Every single guitar I've owned by lots of different manufacturers has needed the action dialling in to my tastes, even my R7.
