If it's only a week old......go back to the store a let them adjust it under warranty. They will gladly help you out if you bought a jem from them.

Better yet, read the tech section(s) here and at Ibanezrules and learn how to do it yourself.

"Give a man a fish and feed him for a day . . . teach him to fish . . ."

It's not hard, and it's something that has to be done from time to time anyway so it's better to know how to do basic set up yourself.

Leave things like fret jobs to the pros, simple things like truss rod adjustment and action is in the grasp of even those with allergies to tools. :-)
