Get your neck pitch right.

We wanted guitars like you sold to the Japanese, you listened. Here is your next dose of feedback. Fix the neck pitch on your guitar. Fender has given up on such a taste long ago which is why they have a micro tilt adjustment on the neck plate so you can adjust the neck pitch. No one wants low action with the strings so low on the body that it cramps your hand. Every single time I setup a bolt Ibanez I have to shim the neck. Wood to wood contact is best. I don't want a paper or even brass shim in a $3k guitar. It is just a simple program calibration in your CNC machine in whatever country they are at, etc. Plus fix this.

Apart from Frank Gambale... Who had his signature model degisned around this whole idea. There's a guy who knows a thing or two about playing the guitar...

Funnily enough, seeing as how I've brought this up, I'm constantly striving to get the whole feel of the guitar slinkier and to have the strings low on the body rather than 16 feet up in the air like they tend to be on something like a Les Paul. It's one of the reasons I prefer the scratchplate guitars (especially rear-route with a clear scratchplate) everything feels so much more ergonomically designed

In my Fleet of Guitars, my best playing one is my FGM400BB period, better then my Jems.
