    I actually dont like the Ibanez 8 bridges much at all. The hipshot bridges seem to be the most comfortable bridges for palm muting IMO so this works out great on this guitar. As far as tensin it all depends on the strings you use since they are both the same scale length.

    So I just got the guitar back. I can see they re-dressed the frets while they had it and the high E string has the clearance it needs at the first fret. It seems to play great but I can see that they filled the higer string slots with what I assume is superglue. When I talked to the tech on the phone he even said this was the less optimal fix and usually its best to replace the nut. I know alot of people use this method but I was to understand that this was supposed to be a last resort/temporary solution. So should this be accaptable for me to stick with or is this something I should call them about once again?

    EDIT: I talked to Albert and he assured me that the procedure they used to fill string slots was just as good as if they were to replace the nut, and they wouldnt have done some crap fix if it wasnt going to actually fix the issue since they warranty the guitar for 5 years. Guess I will have to take his word.

    Regardless the guitar feels better than ever with the new fret fress job.

    It's a new guitar... I'd call them on it to get it right the first time. Iron out all the bugs now, because a year from now when the glue fails from use, you may regret not being able to fix any future issues then.

    Thats what I was thinking at first, but he swears up and down it will be fine. If something goes to shit later on I guess they will have to take care of it again.

    Thanks for all the kind words about the guitar and pics! I cant wait to get my second DC800 in 7 weeks. I even went on a bike ride through town and found a nice place for a photo shoot for my NGD. I think the place I chose will fit nicely with the guitar :metal:
