Joined the family...

Hey guys, today I joined the jem family. I got a 2004 Vwh. Shes a beauty I love her. She screams and is something to behold. After being a browser for ALONG time and finally joining what seems like a long time ago I got the money for her!

But theres a problem, the neck is bent, when I say bent I dont mean its bent beyond reason theres no fretbuzz or anything like that she just sits like this \. Not that bad of course its noticeable just, Im wondering will the tech be able to fix her, it makes me sad thinking that ill have to get my money back because she is so speical and so nice to play! I mean shes only 4 years old shorely they will be able to fix her.... right?

Sounds like it should be no problem. Nothing a good set-up and if necessary, a neck shim, won't cure. Congrats...

Well, if you're gigging her, then it is most definitely an easy fix, sound like it's just a little off. A good tech will set her right up proper, but you really should learn how to do it yourself...

Yeah she got a 3 min stint why'l we played a 12 bar blues, the neck is bent... But me and the previous owner came to a good agreement, there is a stress fracture at the neck joint, if its just the neck and its unfixable I will just ask for $300 back and get Ernie from etguitars to make me a new one if his not to busy.
