Rocka Rollas brings life to these forums and the fact that he doesn't like what a company offers is right on. Too many butt kissers

Disagree with the dude, but don't wish that shit on anyone.
I DOEN A BAD MURDA.
Floyd Rose Special (must upgrade to OFR)
Mismatched fretboard/nut radius (have to switch to a 14" Gotoh nut)
Then I would have prefered if the neck was 3- or 5-piece for more stability
Simply enough I just dont trust things wit Floyd Rose Specials, it doesn't give off a good overall vibe for me
If people complained enough maybe we still would have had Charvel and Jackson Pro series made in Japan
I've tried maybe 5-6 different Mexico Charvel Pro Mod San Dimas/So-Cals in my local guitar shop and none of them feel nice!
One even had a pickguard that was so bent, that the pickups was resting against the strings ..........
Otherwise in the store they all had terribly high action and went out of tune after a dive
So thats what I expect them to be out of the box, because the guitar store does nothing with the setup. They recieve packages and hang guitars without doing anything.
So yeah, the Mexico Charvels might not be the worst guitars ever but they are defintely crappily setup from factory!

I would never buy an off-the-shelf guitar thats badly setup from factory, I think they are hiding other issues! Like shitty fretwork an stuffl ike that they can hide by having high action
The Jackson CBXNT bass I was trying out had shitty fretwork and a tuner that was badly installed.
X series sure so I shoudn't expect anything great but that was like super bad
