Re: Jem BSB cant lower the strings any further
Talk about Serendipity in this thread. Just got a BSB and am in the process of setup/cleaning.
I have the same problem. However, my problem is not the locking screw. Mine is that the stud inserts are not all the way down into the body flush with the wood. I prefer not to shim the neck if I don't have to but this time I will. On the off chance the holes in the body are not drilled far enough I don't want to damage anything.
They are not loose in the body or anything and like others have said shimming is easy and less destructive. It was shimmed before but I removed them as I don't care about trem pull up and prefer full neck contact with body.
