This thread is like going to a really good movie you can watch again and again! I have a Zakk Wylde epi which was a train wreck at the beginning, but really plays like butter now. I've bookmarked this thread. Thanks for sharing with us! I really want a white LP but i can't stand the sticky neck syndrome. I see the way around it a little scuff and it's good to go! Thank you for sharing this with us! So informative!! The tip about buffing the frets with cowhide made me SMH! Interesting!!
