    My local store does NOT setup guitars when sold. It was the store I went to for buying a Jackson bass, and I said the first fret buzzed a lot and one of the tuners was misaligned enough to obstruct with another tuner, and they was like "how often do you even play there anyway?" and "you could fix the tuner yourself"... They wanted me so bad to buy the bass even tho I found these big issues that should not be there on a brand new bass.

    The 1st fret buzzing aside, the bass was one of the best playing basses I've had my hands on! If it wasn't forthe buzz on the 1st fret, I would have bought it and fixed the tuner myself.

    Yes they had EVH Striped Series in the same guitar store and I only remember the fret ends being like sawtooths. That's not the factories fault tho, that happens on just about all maple board guitars that comes to Sweden, but that one was the worst ever.

    So I can't remember if it felt any good to play because I put it away very quickly!

    The EVH floyd isn't that like a EVH branded 1000 series? Thats the minimum I could think of when buying a guitar, and then use it until it dies and then upgrade.
    A guitar with Floyd Rose Special I wouldn't bother using the original trem at all haha

    It costs a Store money to have 1 or 2 employees wasting time Setting up the Guitars, unless theres nothing to do. Hey it could be a nice part time for you, say you want to do Setups on all of their Guitars... but DONT Scratch them

    The EVH ones have the FR 1000 branded EVH FR as far as I know.

    The two EVHs I tried (Stripped) and a the cheap of the Line Wolfgang TOM version had both AMAZING Necks and really great fretwork all edges where super smooth, considering the Wolfgang costed 350 euros I was very very impressed.

    Well, I thoguht scratches and dents raised the price, called relics.


    With amazing necks, do you mean stable?

    How does one presicaly determine how a neck is stable... I usually out the guitar on the floor/table and then pressing the head to see if it moves more or less with more or less force. But its hard to know exactly! Anybody has a better way to determine how stable a neck is?

    I mean they felt really good on my touch, especially the Asymmetrical on the Wolfgang, a bit more chunkier on the top (Low E) and thinner at the bottom (Higher E).

    Ok, I don't usually think about that much. I dont like super fat necks but if it's anything between I'm ok with anything I guess.

    Then I guess they should be fine even they are far from what I'm looking for function wise.

    They do look super cool. Especially the white striped with pickguard

    Yeah they do

    The Pickup is direct Mounted on the Body not on the PickGuard, the PickGuard is just for looks... too bad they arent Routed HSS underneath it

    3 new pages and of course 2.5 of them are Rocka posts.

    Literally the first two guitars on the list have stainless frets, according to the description. There were others too but they seemed randomly distributed.

    Judging guitars on how they come setup from the factory, or even worse, how they're setup in a music store, is dumb.
