The frets are seated, filed flush, beveled,
dressed, crowned and polished. Thanks to the immaculate prep work, only a very light
dressing is required. Iím very particular about fret dressing and pay close attention so
I donít remove more material than necessary. The edge of the fingerboard
is also re-finished.|
Hereís the customerís comment on the guitar.
some feedback for you regarding the wonderful setup you did. :)
very pleased with the way you handled the guitar, lots of care and
attention, very nice. It really puts my heart at ease, I've seen
techs grab my guitar (in the bag) and just swing (yes, swing) the whole
thing by the neck into some corner.
anycase, when I got the guitar back, first thing I noticed what how
comfortable the action felt and how smooth the frets were. Then I noticed
the lack of fret buzz! That was something I have lived with for some
time. Then the tuning was great! Back home, I was playing all
high up the neck and going crazy there. I used to always have this
nagging feeling at the back of my head that my intonation ain't perfect
(tried to do it right with the tu12) and it made me sort of hold back from
going up the neck.
wise, I think I do notice something. Yeah, you did lower the
bridge pup but you lowered the trem too and I think the string distance to
the bridge pup is almost the same as last time... but the difference
isn't that. I think its the thinner frets or the better intonation
or the lack of buzz. Its SOMETHING alright. The tone of the
guitar sounds more... there's more snap to it when I dig in. Its
very obvious and I love it, very Paul Gilbert. Then for the high up
(frets > 12) playing, the neck pup sings clearer and seems to breath
better. No buzz there. And just recently, 2 hrs back, I played
with the neck pup high up and that tone sounded FRESH!
in all, I really like the playability. Oh yeah, the trem being
stiffer? Its okay, I actually find it nice. Also, you were
saying that there would be less/no flutter? Its still there.
:) A little less but yeah, its all I
