Re: Nut Height - Ibanez Rules article; still an issue ?
Setup from the factory in all areas is always an issue. These guitars sit in containers for sometimes months so if there was any setup at the factory little is left. Combine that with no factory setup is ever dialed in. I have had nuts both too high and too low, there is no hard rule, every guitar must be dealt with as a single entity in all the bugs or flaws it may have.
The 2009 update was to probably remove the information that from 2000-2009 Fujigen never cut the nut rout deep enough and to correct it required fixing the rout or taking height off the nut. I was going to write up another page and link them but obviously I never got that far. Today very rarely do you find a Japanese locking nut or rout needs to be worked, but from the last ones I handled Premiums were still a bad problem and one small part of the reasons I just quit handling non signature Premiums.
Fixed bridge nuts are usually not cut deep enough, or can be irregular with high and too low slots
