Don't these Mick Thomson guitars have a 3rd hidden screw locking the bridge in place? Maybe the bridge route isn't deep enough, or maybe they don't know how to adjust the hidden screw from the backplate?Very lucky - a dealer that doesn't question manufacturing issues and puts it all on the customer, he's a manufacturer's wet dream.
Meanwhile - not posting the dealer or the group this was in (I'm sure there's members on this board that are in the group and have seen the post though). This is the shit Jackson is currently putting out:

As a Master Builder, how do you not route a bridge properly and secondly, how do you let that out of the shop?

I guess i'm wrong about the access point on the new productions, but if you look up the bridge (there's pictures on eBay) it has a third lock down screw hidden away under the fine tuners. His original customs had the battery pack directly behind the bridge, rotated 90 degrees and i'm purely guessing that's where you'd access the hidden screw.I think the screw you're talking about was only on the NAMM Limited Edition model, when it was a jerry-rigged Floyd Rose bridge. The production model has no backplate.
I'm sure these dealers have dealt with enough Mick Thomson sig models to know when something is or isn't right.
Absolutely unacceptable, did you order the SL or did you pick it up second hand?Jackson can botch a Floyd route just as easily. Or probably the neck angle. I have a 2018 CS soloist with too shallow an angle - Floyd is sitting on the bottom shelf. String action is fine, luckily, as it would not go any lower. Of course touching the trem arm will push it out of tune

Fucks sake. RG565 or the Danhage. I can swing both financially. But explaining it when they get home is another matter...
"Prices on nearly all guitars have gone up, and are going to increase even more soon. Buying both now actually saves money! I know how incredibly intelligent, perceptive, and generous you are, so I acted as I thought you would. Now every time I play these, I'll think of you and how wonderful you are."
I was considering the price increase excuse. The increases are so stupid the excuse becomes reasonable
Normally I'm with you, but the gold with the unfinished headstock and no maple fretboard is really killing it for me here.
