The looks are what sold me. The fretboard and frets need some sanding but it sounds pretty decent. The action is not bad at all. I need to put some good strings on it to see if that improves the sound at all but this will hold me over until I can afford something like a Taylor
Robert plant recommends this Elvis Taylor !

Good Day and Greetings
Sorry for the inconvenience caused. We send the brand new products. May be this is damaged during shipping.
I am attaching the prepaid return shipping label. You may return the product back to us.
Warm Regards

Hello. It is highly unlikely the shipper drilled incorrect positions for the holes on this guitar and mounted the parts crooked.
However thank you for the return label. The defective item will be sent back today. Please try to hurry the replacement.

Did my first nut job a little bit back on my Squier strat. The factory nut was way off I discovered during the process and the Tusq nut has rock solid tuning stability.

Yeah, Brewie. That low E is off on that stock one. The black was a good choice ! Adds some contrast.
Tusqs rock ! I can hear the difference from here !! I put a Tusq XL on my (Finally got a) Semi Hollow body.
I had to sand down the height ( bottom ) But individual string's nut dept was spot on.


I have specs for a fast test here. You may be happy with your setup, whereas these are the baselines.
But at least you'll know what your setup is. You just put a ruler on two strings.

The spacing was all off on the factory nut. The new one lines up perfectly
Yep. My experience was the same. Just matched overall height with the pulloff part.
Here's the Hollowbody I wound up with after returning the horrific Oscar Schmidt.
It's an upgrade across the board. I still upgraded the nut to Tusq
Guess it's time to put the truss rod cover back on.

That thing is damn slick. I’m a sucker for a burst finish

Thanks! " Indio Boardwalk ". ( think Casino)
The "natural tobacco burst" w/ Tiger stripe are priced up, and apparently harder to get than the other few "color" variants. Have story. But not today :sneaky:

So this one arrives. Nice to see the frets were professionally leveled at manufacture. Sales pitch says they do that.
But never crowned, which left me with buzzing strings right out of the box. I bought a crowning tool and fixed 'em.
Then it got the Tusq. They have a silicate or something embedded in their polymer or whatever.
Beneficial for anything with a whammy.
Definitely glad I switched.
