    Problem with Gotoh bridge not a tight fit on the posts?

    The intonation is a bit off on my 2017 Epiphone Les Paul Gold Top, so I bagged a Gotoh replacement bridge, which has a bit more saddle travel than the stock Epi bridge.

    Epi Les Paul Standard neck joint question

    So, after 27 years playing my '91 Fender American Standard Strat, I've finally taken the (economical) Les Paul plunge. My new 2018 Gold Top arrived at long last and despite needing a set-up, I love it! I'm so used to the Strat setup with the bolt on neck and body being straight aligned that I...
