RG370DX. Action too high at nut and no shims found!
Got an RG370DX. Overall, I like it a lot. Really like its neck and radius. The edge III is not bad at all imho.
Overall, a good budget guitar indeed. Sounds good as is, to my ears at least, so I'll keep the stock pups for a while.
The only complain:
I found my action a little too high over the first frets and too high in general. Lowering the tremolo helped a bit but, as expected, it's still a little too high over the fist fret. I placed a shim at the neck pocket and reseted the trem height at its factory position and now the overall action is much better but, as expected, the action still too high at the nut. Since I will change the 9's for 10's soon it will be even higher.
The only thing left I could do would be to file the wood under the locking nut, right? So if it's the case, what file do you recommend to do that king of job? Anything special I should take care of before doing anything?
Thanks for your inputs!
