I believe I have the creaky neck pocket problem. The first time I dive when I pick up my guitar I hear the little "click" kind of sound. It doesn't do it again while I'm playing that session. When I pick up my guitar the next day, once again, it will make the sound the first time I use the bar. So is this neck pocket creaking anything to worry about, does it affect the playability or tuning stability? I can deal with the single creak if it has no real effect on the actual playability aspects. I've had tuning stability issues with the bridge on my UV777BK since I got in '98. I recently came upon the tutorials at Rich's site and have corrected my flat knife edges and epoxied in the loose anchors. The last thing I need to do is track down that creak and replace the V posts with new cut posts. My guitar now at least has two reliable zeros so I can count on keeping it in tune by always returning it to the same zero every time.
