  1. Thank you for taking the time to respond. I will take it to the nearest warranty center.
  2. Thanks for the response. The guy who set it up said he only moved the nut 1/2 of a turn. It had never been turned before but the rod goes through the nut about an inch which makes no sense if he really only turned it 1/2 turn. It seems to sound okay and remains in tune so hopefully compression is the issue. Do you know if Gibson warrants this issue? I know to replace the rod would cost more than I paid for it in 2004.
  3. Thanks for the reply. I played the guitar off and on since purchase however did something stupid like loosening the strings and putting it away for a period of time. When I finally decided to play it again I put new strings on it and tried to tune the guitar. That's when I knew I screwed up. Unfortunately there is not a Gibson dealer or service center in this area so I took it to a local music shop to have it set up. I will have to make a trip in the future.
  4. I purchased an ES 333 in 2004 and recently had it set up. The individual who set it up pointed out the truss rod seemed somewhat strange and showed me how it slightly presses the truss cover up (won't lay flat). The rod extends pretty far beyond the nut. I will eventually get the guitar to a certified Gibson tech. Is it possible to make enough adjustments to shorten the length of rod that goes beyond the nut and keep the neck straight? Thanks
