I'm cursed. It seems every strat I get I cant get the action down. It sits at like 1/4in past the 12th everytime I get a new one. Then I end up selling it and being really pissed off. I can set up guitars no problem but fender strats just have the most annoying bridges ever. I'm talking early 90s mim strat with the kinda saddle shape bridges that turn up at the end. I can get the action low enough on the first 12, then the last 10 are jacked way up. I shimmied the neck hoping that would fix it since there isnt a neck angle adjustment on this guitar. When I did that it bottomed the top and made the back 10 sit better. I'm so frustrated by this. I just want a start that plays nice. I've seen them, I've played them. But for some reason I cant get one to work. By the way I'm not one of those guys that thinks the trussrod is for action adjustment. So if that's your answer please learn how to not destroy a neck trying to set action with a relief adjustment. The bridge is for action adjustment, but god just doesnt want me to strat. If you have any suggestions that would be great. I always have more to learn and you guys are definitely the ones to ask about fenders. This seems to be a common problem with strats. The neck is straight on this one. I got relief in order. The action is just driving me insane.
