I don't like it, i love it !

Sounds great when played gentle, but when i start shredding the low E has a buzz and the action is quite high and the finish on the frets ain't that great, intonation is far from perfect ... So the setup of the $3500 beast is horrible compared to my sons $107 Harley Benton ...

So i will redo some fretwork and set it up propperly.

No matter how high i set the action the fretbuzz on the low e remains. After playing around with the truss rod i was able to lower the action, but i still have some fretbuzz on both e strings. it looks like the 22nd fret is too high and not crowned propperly.

I'm thinking about spending another $200 for a plek job .....

Maybe try a setup by a reputable tech? I've had a couple of Pauls that were gong shows when I got them, but improved dramatically after a proper setup. Beautiful LP there :thumb:

Got rid of the buzz by changing strings from .09 to .11 and a fresh setup and crowning some Frets. Action is now also acceptable.
