So this will be a bit of a long post, I'm hoping to hear from Guitar Tech or Luthier's or members who really now guitar set up to see if my theory is correct. I guess I've proven it to myself twice now with both my Strat and Tele and want to spread the word a bit in case someone else is having the same issues as me. So, a bit of backround.... My 96 American Strat always played great with Ok action and I never really had an issue with it until I bought my first Gibson which was a LP Standard. I had it professionally set up by an actual Luthier (this was before I did my own set ups..) and the LP came back with crazy low action, played like butter with no buzzing (unless I really hammer the strings). I started to pick up my Strat and tried to get the action low like the Gibson. The more I played with it I couldn't get it anywhere near what I thought it could be. It would buzz all over and the higher frets would buzz but the action was very high at that end. Now, I had a properly cut nut, neck relief around .10 and the frets on the Strat had recently been levelled. It thought this doesn't make sense cause I've modified every variable to be like the Gibsons but I can't get the action nice and low without buzzing...WTF!?? The only other variable on the Strat is the Micro Tilt adjustment so I decided to play around with the neck angle, after all why would it be put there by Fender. I posted on another forum for advice and everyone said the neck angle was only to be used if you run out of saddle room and nothing else.... I disagreed and went ahead anyway. Well, with a little bit of Micro Tilt adjustment I was able to get my Strat super low like my Les Paul with playability all over the neck. Super happy with the result for sure! Ok, so now enter my 2017 American Special Tele. Really great set up from the Factory, nice fretwork by Fender, I added a nice cut bone nut but I couldn't get the action nice and low like my Strat or Gibbies without having bad buzzing in different spots of the neck. And yet again, the strings at the higher frets were buzzing even though the action was high... WTF, can a simple neck shim fix this like the Strat?? YUP, you guessed it!! I ordered a .25 shim from Stew mac and installed that on the Tele to experiment.. Surprise, surprise, after some relief(.11) and saddle adjustment, I now have crazy low nice no buzzing action across the whole neck. What a different guitar!! Very happy!! Just wanted to pass this one in case it helps anyone else turn their favorite Strat or Tele into an ultimate playing beast!
