    I was looking at a used Custom Shop (mid 2000s) Non Reverse Firebird with 3 mini-hums at a really good price.

    Brazilian Custom Shop Standards @ Chicago Music Exchange

    ABR1 String height ... on the low E

    I am trying to set up a 58 Reissue LP. When I adjust the ABR1 ... 5 of the strings are fine in terms of being buzz free and a reasonable height, except for the low E which is then too high.

    and we complain about Gibson ???

    I came across this guitar while browsing the web and it got me to thinking. Gibson "quality" gets bashed so bad on other forums and PRS is usually their 'darling'. Heck, we even bash Gibson here, ourselves.:rofl When I saw this PRS body, I laughed, and said how a poorly matched multi-pieced...
