    Nut Shifted Toward Low E String

    If it doesn't bother you, leave it. If it bothers you and you know a good tech, have them replace the nut. If you are a DIY type of person, mask the neck wood and file down the part that is stiking out.

    How important is the body of a Strat in the production of sound?

    Body wood may or may not make a sonic difference. I believe each component is part of the guitar's sound. Hardware is the largest contributer, wood much less so. This is my opinion.

    My volume dilemma.

    Low efficency speaker will also help, Jensen Mod is 94db and they sound really good.

    My volume dilemma.

    Attenuator? They start ~$100 and go up from there.

    Mayones are quality instruments. I'd say equal to Suhr and Kiesel in materials and workmanship If you like the look and specs, why not?!

    No pictures? Purchasing it sight unseen? I'd say no.

    Very Disappointed

    Welcome to the forum. I understand your disappointment. As mentioned by many, you can move the neck.

    I’ve never seen a better player than Tommy Baldwin

    Excellent player and his feel is great. So many young players out there playing with speed and feel. Good stuff. Matteo Mancuso is another fantastic player, mind blowing chops and advanced techniques. Inspirational players, for sure!

    Anyone play more "structured" songs in bands/jam groups?

    I have always preferred more complex music. I write some weird stuff, but it is challenging for all involved! ;)

    Injinji's? They are well revered by long distance runners. The blistering is reduced because each toe has protection. My wife uses them when distances go over 13 miles.

    Everyone has their preferences. I prefer ebony boards. I like tung oil necks either maple or walnut.

    I know nothing about clean tone

    I'd suggest changing the amp sim from acoustic to black face. The sound will be less shrill. A compressor into a delay and a touch of reverb will give you a nice sound and feel. Play with the guitar volume and tone knobs for extra tones.

    An Orangutan At The Louisville Zoo Recently Asked For A Close-up Look At A Young Visitor.

    Need is the operative word in my post. Killing for pleasure is not my thing.

    An Orangutan At The Louisville Zoo Recently Asked For A Close-up Look At A Young Visitor.

    One of the many reasons I choose not to eat animals or support any zoo. Animals have personalities and intelligence. In this day and age, we do not need to kill, imprison and/or eat them.

    This guy is full of

    I'm not a fan of any of the players that this is about, but that doesn't make me want to denigrate their playing. It's art, opinion only matters to the individual. Hawkin's opinion only matters to him and his sheeple. 'Click Bait' is friggin' annoying.

    Any Recommendations for a 'Bedroom' Amp for Tight High Gain

    I have a modeller, it can get a really good tight high gain sound. I also have a Laney L5S. It sounds phenomenal for clean to heavy rock. Those bases are covered. What I want is a low power amp for tight high gain metal. I have a 1x12 loaded with a Celestion Seventy 80, so a head would be...
