    I think I'm gonna get an Epi, but I think I would have a tech do it, cuz I would NOT be able to do that by myself lol(im thirteen years old). What I noticed while playing one at a store is that the neck is REALLY STICKY, thats about my only gripe. And the action is a little high, so I think i'm gonna have it setup, even though its pretty expensive. I'm so glad I saw this thread, otherwise I wouldn't of thought of sanding the back of the neck. I might attempt to do that myself, well actually I would probably have my dad do it. (so i could blame him if he messed up :D) But thanx alot roman.

    awesome thread Roman.... i go down to l.a. a few times a year, i'd also be curious to know what this kind of setup would cost and how long it takes if i were to bring the epi with me down there. i usually stay a few days to a week... and where abouts in the l.a. area are you?

    What should I do when I have no experience and tools for doing that? How much would such a procedure cost (just an realistic price range) when I let it do an luthier?

    i hope you are kidding. for one, there is usually a per post character limit on these types of boards. two, the man is well respected in the industry/community, takes the time to take pictures and do this write up for us under NO obligation to do so, and you say it is annoying to look through 4 pages? third, maybe it was just easier to do one section at a time.....

    It's less annoying than going out spending the money for a book, or waiting for it to come in the mail.

    This is free info, and besides...........it would probably take up 4 pages in a book as well.:D
