Just spent the evening fiddling with my CV strat after getting fed up of the floating trem. Decked it, lowered the pickups (using a video that was posted on here recently) and did a bit of saddle adjustment too. Not perfect, but so rewarding! I was terrified of messing with this stuff at first, and my other guitar (my first) went off to the shop for a basic setup. It cost a lot and the guy was cool enough to say "look, you can do this yourself." So I had a proper go on the strat tonight and I feel much more involved with my guitar now! It's funny how just turning a few screws and fixing a few silly mistakes make you appreciate the instrument more. Give it a go, if you haven't! The only thing I'm not sure about is the action, bending is still difficult without catching other strings but that's probably bad technique more than anything. Ah well, I'll keep fiddling forever. PS - Still suck at vintage tuners. Damn that high E.
