Just got my first es175. It’s a 2012 VOS ‘59 reissue. I’ve learned how to setup and maintain my LP and I’m hoping to do the same here. I’m happy to report that overall it left the shop with a damn good setup. I love the action and the intonation is spot on. It’s god a dead straight neck with just about no relief which is how I like it. The strings are round 13-56 with a wound G. I’d like any advice on how to keep this beautiful guitar in great shape for years to come. I’m all ears! I have a few initial questions: 1) The wood bridge seems to be a bit dry. Actually the wood base of the bridge specifically. Wondering if I should apply a bit of oil? And if so can I just use the same Nomad F-1 oil I use on the fretboard? 2) It’s set up with round wounds. I am going to use the guitar for more than just jazz, are round strings more versatile? I know the answer is try a bunch, but just wondering from other’s experience. In addition to jazz I’ll be playing some blues on it. Stupid question, but if I try flats can I still use a pick, any downside? 3) if I try a lower guage such as 11s or 12s to make bending easier, will I need to adjust the the bridge and truss? Will they fit ok in the same nut and bridge slots? Same question if I try flats. 4) Since it’s a big hollow body does it need any special consideration for storage when I’m not playing? I normally keep my guitars out of their cases in my home hanging on Hercules guitars stands. They stay out of the direct sun in a temperature controlled room. I’m in Los Angeles so weather is pretty good. Here she is!
