  1. Thank you. I also entered this same post in the Epiphone Electrics forum, after I realized I accidentally entered this question in the Gibson ES forum. Regards, Ian
  2. Does anyone have any suggestions for the best setting, and how to measure, the neck setting on the ES-339? I bought it new and it was essentially flat, so I had to back off the truss rod nut a little every few days until I got some daylight under the strings. I am currently measuring the gap at the 9th fret, while keeping the string held down at the 1st and 14th. This is how it is written in the Gibson Les Paul manual. But there is no such truss rod adjustment advice in the Epiphone ES-339 manual. Thank you, Ian
  3. Does anyone have any suggestions for the truss rod adjustment? My ES-339 was essentially flat, and I had to back off the pressure on the truss rod. The Gibson Les Paul calls for a .010 clearance on the 9th fret, while you hold down the string on 1st and 14th fret; but there is no spec for neck curve on the ES-339 user manual. Any input would be appreciated. My bridge height is currently to spec. Thank you.
