Beautiful pics. How high is your action in millimeters? I ask because from the angle of some of the pics it seems quite high.

It's a little less than 1.5 mm at 12th fret on the high E and ~ 1.9 on the bass side. I used to have them lower and have a fear about I wouldn't be able to play as good as I used to if I raise them. But I found that I have much control over the instrument with this action. The notes have more definition and sweeps are especially easier.

All the way forward...

It hasn't been too long since it arrived , less than 1 month. I just wanna play the hell out of it for now till I change the strings, which is very soon.
With the new strings in, I'll set the intonation and it seems that saddle is definetly going back.


We're on honeymoon right now
