Re: string alignment?

you mean the distance between the first/last string and the end of the fingerboard is off?

In what context was the phrase used in the article?

Do you mean the strings aligning with each other, the edge of the fret board, the tuning pegs, the pickups?

I can understand the confusion. It is a vague term

Re: string alignment?

Typically it will be the alignment of the strings on the neck, how centered they are. It's easy to fix if the neck pocket will allow the neck to move to where the strings are centered. Plenty of pockets will not, and you need to correct the pocket alignmnet first. Some necks won't want to stay in place even with the screw torque so you can side shim the neck pocket to keep the neck centered even without torque.
