First let me ask a questions. Have you ever bought a new guitar that out of the box (not including Richs guitars) that the factory set up kicked ass and needed no tweaking?\
I just got my new American Strat Deluxe QMT and the factory setup was horrible. Action to high, neck angle need adjustment, and nut shimmed too high. I did a perfect setup with the action and bridge etc. When to loosen the strings to get the shim out from under the LSR and the high E broke. Guess what I don't have a spare (smack).
I had similar problems with my RGT220A from Ibby. Can't post any picks of the guitar but damn it is purty. The Quilt Maple top is beautiful. Dependin on the angle of light you get differnt looks and it has that nice new geetar smell.
