    NGD! The neck is not flush with binding on my new CS

    I didn't measure but I don't believe the fretboard was off. It looked like the binding shrunk evenly on both sides, leaving a lip on both sides, which was from the nut to almost the 3rd fret.

    NGD! The neck is not flush with binding on my new CS

    Thanks everybody for the input and help. No pics because i returned the guitar today on a unrelated issue. After learning that it's a common occurrence, I checked my other guitars. My 63 RI es 335 and my R8 both have this issue, just to a way lesser extent.

    NGD! The neck is not flush with binding on my new CS

    The neck is not flush with binding on my new CS. From the nut to the 3rd fret on the bass side and the treble side. The neck sticks out over the binding. Never seen this before. Has anyone ever run into this?

    Any improvements to 2021 (non-Murphy Lab) historics?

    I'm noticing it on the es models as well. In some pics it appears almost purplish.

    Did not mean to offend. I just dont see the point of telling him about the Robert Cray sig. If I wasn't familiar with the CS, that info would just confuse me more. Maybe it's just me. Either way Mike, I appreciate the help you give on this forum.

    I don't imagine that whole Robert Cray sig story helps. Go to a store and play the guitars. That's the way to buy a guitar. If you can't do that, educate yourself on the specs of different CS models. Watch YouTube videos of stores that are demonstrating certain models. Get to know the specs on...

    Keep an eye on the neck radius. I think that one is 7.25. That's a deal breaker for some folks, like me. Your standard is most likely 9.5.

    63 50th anniversary ES 335 price?

    I may be incorrect on the USA warranty, but I am very confident on the Canadian warranty time of 1 year. Believe me, I wish I was wrong.
