yup they were plenty stretched. i think i just dont have the patience for what a floating trem demands. I don't even use the whammy, i just buy guits like this cuz the overall quality is unmatched by other guitars I like.
eventually when i can afford a custom i can solve all my issues but for now I blocked the trem on another guit of mine, and finally did it to the one in question last night.
anyway, once everything adjusts I think i'll be better off than b4 =)
oh and i just had to add this little thing. I found a way to "cover" inlays on the fretboard! I found some good stickers in my house, punched some holes in em and then stuck them right over the inlay!
might sound stupid but looks pretty convincing. doesn't interfere with playing at all. so now my inlays just appear on the 12th and 24th.
