Ideally, no. Common? Yes.Is it normal for a lightning bar on a 61 SG Special RI to be higher on the 1st string end than on the 6th string end? The stopbar has 3 threads showing on the high e end, and none showing on the low e end? Everything feels right, and no buzz, but I was concerned when I noticed this.
Thank you, I feel better about it now. The "tech" did a fairly poor set up as far as the string height. The actions not awful, but I can do better, and now that I'm making it a player, I will. That will even it up a bit better after I gave it a really good going over today. Disappointed with Gibson QC though , found 2 areas on the binding that look like someone used a roller with lines across the wheel, and pressed too hard. It left a little 1/4" depression on the top, and one about 3/4" on the bottom a few frets difference between them or I'd think it was in a vise, but you have to look pretty hard to see it. I wonder if they'll fix it on a seven year old guitar that's not been played since purchased? I doubt it. Again Thanks
