How to fix this?

Recommended Posts

What's going on here and is there an easy fix? Everything looks great at the nut but all strings gradually slant toward the low E end side of the neck.

I uploaded a few more photos at the following link: Imgur.com SG Photos

LPSpll,

 

The most useful photo at this point would be of the bridge.

 

Can you post a photo of that?

Show us the nut and the bridge.

Umm yeah, no. More pics please, of nut, bridge, neck to body join if it's a bolt on neck, and a view of the whole of the front of the guitar body.

 

And, what sort of guitar is it?

Sg special?

If so its a bolt on neck, correct? Looks like the neck could be on crooked, there could be room in the neck pocket to loosen screws and re-align. If not the pocket may have been routed incorrectly, doubtful but possible.

Can you get a refund on it and return it? If you have had it for a while, has it always been like this?

Yes, it was always like this. I bought it two or three years ago for like $110 on Amazon and planned on using it to practice setups and modifications. I figured I’d learn how to correct the neck sooner or latter. I removed the neck and one screw hole has been doubled drilled and it left wiggle room. I’ll play with it more.
