What do you guys think about the ugly Alumiloid inlays used in some of the Pro series made in Indonesia?
I think they are awful and make the guitars look cheap...
Even the cheaper X series guitars look better:
And another thing I've noticed is that the floyd rose locking nuts are too high and the action is very high in the first frets..
I had a soloist and still have a king V ... both had the same problem..
What can I do to fix this? shave some wood? change the locking nut?
They are the "pro series"... I think they could put more attention to this sort of details...
I think the Alumiloid inlay would look better on a grey-ish finish, like that guitar below. But even then maybe a bit tacky.
Don't know what to do with the nut. Shaving some wood could do the trick, but it sounds odd that new guitars have such a problem. Especially when it's about locking nuts and not just a regular nut that hasn't been properly slotted....
