    Do you find that new guitars often require a little fret leveling TLC? That's been my experience...................... from Am Standards and downward at least.

    Just got a Fender Tele today and there's a tiny bit of fretboard hump where the neck meets the body. :sneaky: I'm debating about returning the guitar vs doing the level. The guitar is perfect otherwise so I'm leaning towards keeping it and breaking out the crowing files.

    I haven’t had a lot of fret problems per say, but I have grown accustomed to immediately breaking out the nut files to open up and optimize the nut slots for tremolo use. I like tremolo, and I like to USE tremolo. A lot. And I want it to return to perfect tune every time. Must nuts need a little work to accomplish it.
    In THIS case......I didn’t need to do anything. What a great guitar. Simple appointments, well executed, functional, useful, purposeful......and with a great array of available tones. James Valentine and Ernie Ball made one HECK of a guitar together. I’m super glad to be on the receiving end of their hard work.

    It's a nice enough looking guitar, but "Greatest Ever" is pushing it a little. Maybe a lot.

    I would have figured single cool in the neck, humbucker in the bridge, but I'm sure it sounds good as it is.

    Well we do know that it is "killer" (an assertion repeated many times) ..... whatever that means. ;)

    Not for the guy who started the thread!

    I was having a little fun with the thread title, even if I may have meant it. Time will tell, but this thing is a beast. I’m not the only one who thinks so either. ;)

    There's a dummy coil in there, probably.
