Only issues that kind of kill it for me are the intonation issue and the f# "hanging" off the side of the neck. I'm probably going to wait for them to pump out another run or 2 and then order one.

Jeez. I didn't realize you had so many issues with your guitar. Makes me kind of happy that mine came almost ready to go out of the box (had to do a bit of nut filing due to changing string gauges and I had to do what Lethe did here, cutting the saddle screw)
